Wild-caught salmon are said to be richer in nutrients than farm-raised salmon, who can’t catch their own food and subsist solely on donuts. Bite down on fresh fish with today's Groupon: for $66, you get a 4-pound package of salmon (a $132 total value) from The Elfish Company LLC. The package includes:
- 2 pounds of wild Alaskan coho salmon (a $65 value)
- 2 pounds of wild Alaskan sockeye salmon (a $67 value)
This Groupon can be redeemed at the Phoenix farmers’ market or online. For online orders, delivery ($10) is not included.
The Elfish Company LLC’s fleet of fishermen catch wild Alaskan salmon one at a time on individual hooks, meeting the sustainability standards of the Marine Stewardship Council. Seafood searchers scan Alaskan swells for elusive coho and sockeye during the brief two-month fishing season to capture peak levels of natural oil, flavor, and popularity in fish-school cliques. Once they've caught a salmon, the fishermen immediately bleed, head, gut, and flash freeze it to preserve freshness, earning their wares sushi- and kosher-grade designations. At the farmers’ market or through home delivery, patrons receive their fish in vacuum-sealed packages that keep in the freezer until they are needed for cooking or competitive fillet-tossing events.
A versatile seafood, salmon can be grilled, broiled, baked, or juggled over hot coals to prepare it for the table. Sockeye salmon bursts with omega 3 oils, and coho salmon tempts palates with a slightly firm texture and a mild taste. The Elfish Company’s online recipes offer guidance on how to garnish either variety.
