Salmon Burger & Shrimp Sampler
Salmon burger comes from the meat along the backbone of the salmon after the fillets are removed. Our filleters carefully cut off as much meat as possible when filleting, but a little always remains, which we carefully hand cut. Why would we want to let even one bite of wild salmon go to waste? This salmon burger came from our trusted processing partners in Haines, Alaska and is made from wild coho salmon.
The coonstripe shrimp featured in this box came from a tiny fishery in northern Lynn Canal, also near Haines, Alaska. A handful of local fishermen caught these shrimp in pots set in pristine glacier-fed inlets nearby.
Coonstripe shrimp are a prized seafood from Alaska. While smaller than spot shrimp, they make up for it in big sweet and buttery flavor. Other common names for coonstripe shrimp are coonies, humpback shrimp, and king shrimp. Compared to other Alaska shrimp, the coonstripe shell, or carapace, is heavier and more robust and has white-colored stripes. Coonstripe females contain dark blue-green roe (eggs) that can be removed and have multiple culinary uses.
Salmon burger is great in omelets, stir-fries, tacos, or burgers, to name a few preparations (recipes for each of these are on our recipe page). It’s versatile, quick to thaw, and easy to prepare for your next dinner (or breakfast). Looking for ideas for a romantic date night dinner? Start your meal with a killer shrimp cocktail and follow with creamy salmon fettuccine. Sparkling rosé goes without saying. Is your mouth watering yet?

What is “the Freezer”?
Although we try our best to forecast exactly how much of a season’s harvest to purchase from our small-boat fishermen, the community supported fishery model has some natural variability to it. It’s both an art and a science to decide how much to buy and how to distribute the catch as evenly as possible among share members. More important and ultimately, species availability is dependent on the health of the fisheries themselves.
When we have a surplus of delicious premium quality seafood after the season’s 4- to 5-pound share boxes are packed, we “stock” the Freezer and make its bounty available to our members or folks who want to try before they buy shares.
We also have unique and seasonal opportunities to purchase additional seafood from our fishermen or trusted partners (but not necessarily enough for all the shares). When we do, we’ll add them to the Freezer for you to order.
Is this the same fish I get in the CSF?
Well, yes and no. The seafood in the Freezer is of the same premium quality from our fishermen or trusted partners. However, not all items in the Freezer will be available in monthly CSF shares and vice versa.
Can I just order one type of fish?
Sometimes we will offer single species boxes in the Freezer in addition to mixed species boxes. We are not currently customizing any of our Freezer boxes.
Do you offer discounts when I order more than one box?
Members enrolled in the 2021 CSF season will receive 10% off Freezer seafood boxes. This applies to ordering one or many. If you are not a member, we encourage you to become one, as access to special discounts and sales are another great membership perk!

“You guys have really made it easy to do my husband's holiday gifts for the past three years. I am very grateful for everyone at Sitka Salmon Shares from your customer service team to the leadership team and all the fishermen, processors, and shipping crews that work behind the scenes to provide us with such wonderful fish.”

“We just got our shipment today. King salmon was on the menu tonight and it was fantastic! I was on the fence about signing up a few months ago, but so glad I did. EVERYTHING we've had is the best ever. Plus, we feel good about supporting small family fishermen (and women) who catch these fish in an ethical manner. I love seeing which fishing vessel caught my dinner.”

“I love the convenience of having quality salmon that is caught responsibly delivered to my door. This month’s delivery was coho salmon and I cooked it last night topped with homemade chimichurri. The texture and flavor of coho is perfect… simply delicious!”

“You came highly recommended from my husband’s colleague. I was a bit hesitant as my confidence in preparing seafood was lacking. I ended up taking the plunge and gifting this to my husband for our anniversary. We are completely hooked (pun intended). I’m trying fish I’ve never even heard of. My husband loves to prepare it (total bonus). We are grateful for the tips, recipes, and community we found here. It’s been a lot of fun for he and I to learn together. We’ve recommended it now too!”
