A CUT ABOVE
Coho salmon are premium and sushi-grade; they are a cut above other species. Coho have a rich, reddish-orange meat and are considered to be among the best-tasting, most versatile varieties of salmon.
Coho salmon are lean, mild, and contain nearly two times the healthy oil content of some other types of salmon.
It’s sustainable. It’s fresh. It’s delicious. And it’s just the beginning.
