Grilling Salmon: Fresh Grilled Salmon Recipes For A Great Grilling Experience From Sam's Club
About Sam's Club Jet Fresh Salmon
Alaskan Sockeye Salmon is arguably the most famous and sought after wild salmon you can buy. The Copper River is one of the longest and most rugged rivers in Alaska, which means that the salmon that call this river home (king, sockeye and silvers) must struggle up 300 tough miles to spawn.
The extra fat and oil the fish pack on their robust bodies to survive the grueling trip is what makes this some of the world’s most delicious salmon.
In collaboration with FedEx® and the Alaskan fishermen,Sam’s Club has created a unique delivery system for these very valuable, very fresh fish. They call their program “Jet Fresh.” The fish is quickly iced down on the boats to maintain freshness and quality. It is then unloaded onto shore, processed, and rushed to the airport in Anchorage, Alaska. FedEx takes it from there and immediately flies the fish across the country to individual Clubs. The result? Wild salmon moves from Alaska to Sam's Club locations in less than 24 hours. Consequently, Sam’s Club fish is often 4 to 5 days fresher than other product that gets shipped by truck.
Due to the specific sustainability guidelines of fishing the Copper River, the salmon delivery schedule varies. Sam's Club expects to begin stocking the special salmon this week, and in the following weeks will make it available to other locations in the U.S. throughout the summer.
