For years, Martha has enjoyed and served True North Seafood to her family and friends. After visiting their salmon farms near her home in Maine, she saw first-hand their innovative methods of sustainable farming and fishing. Their passion for the environment and community is why they are one of North America’s largest and most trusted producers of farmed and wild-caught seafood from the Gulf of Alaska to the Atlantic.

Sustainably-farmed in the clear waters of the Gulf of Maine, this Atlantic salmon is known for its rich flavor and pairs beautifully with our lemon herb butter.

Cooking Tips

Cook salmon until fish is opaque throughout or when a paring knife inserted in the center is warm to the touch. Perfectly cooked salmon will flake easily when done. Cook time will vary slightly depending on thickness of fillets.
