Coho Salmon

aka Silvers

Oncorhynchus kisutch

Cohos or “Silvers” (the market name) are the second largest of the five Alaskan salmon species, with an average weight of 12 pounds, and are also the salmon family’s best-kept secret. Considered to be an excellent eating fish, they are a perfect choice for grilling with their orange-red flesh, firm texture, and delicate flavor.

Coho salmon has a similar market appeal as sockeye, but are usually available for slightly less. They are low in saturated fat and an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, high-quality protein, and potassium. Cohos add variety to a menu or a seafood case and are a nice change of pace from farmed salmon.
