A great way to serve King Salmon

Darcie’s “Sitka Chicken” (Panko Fried King Salmon) | Sitka Salmon Shares

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min
Total time: 20 min
Serves: 4


  • 1 pound king salmon, cut in 1-inch cubes
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 cup Panko
  • Vegetable oil
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon chile sauce (we love Sriracha!)


Arrange flour, egg, and Panko in three separate shallow plates or bowls. Season flour and Panko with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Dredge salmon pieces in flour mixture, dip in egg, then coat in Panko.

Fill a medium saucepan, Dutch oven or electric fryer halfway with oil. Heat to 375°F. When oil is heated, fry salmon in batches, removing when golden brown and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes. Rest on a paper towel-lined plate.

In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, and chile sauce. Dip salmon and enjoy!

Ramp Chimichurri for Whitefish

Boil 1 cup water and stir in 1 tablespoon salt. Set aside to cool. Dice 1 cup parsley, 10-12 ramps (bulbs and leaves), 1 cup fresh oregano, and 3 garlic cloves. Add ingredients and 2 teaspoon red pepper flakes to a medium bowl. Whisk in ¼ cup red-wine vinegar, ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil, and the cooled salt water. Transfer to a mason jar with airtight lid and place in the fridge for a day for the flavors to meld. We recommend using this sauce on a variety of whitefish including halibut, Pacific cod, lingcod, and rockfish.
