  • Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon for $7.50 lb... Possible?

    I stumbled upon some true wild alaskan salmon on Sunday... it was only $14.99 for 2 lbs. I have eaten wild alaskan salmon in the past, but it contained its own marinate on it. We all know how bad those can be. I want to marinate it myself! Or do what I want with it!

    So, I simply went over to the fish area at my local supermarket. Yes, a supermarket. I must say, I am VERY impressed with Meijer - anyone else shop there?

    Well, they have Icy Straights Wild Alaskan Salmon. You can by a whole salmon or one that is cut into nice patties. Both are simply salmon - nothing added to it. But, $7.50 per pound seems to be cheap... am I right?

    Has anyone else had this brand of seafood? I can't wait to try it!!!!!

    They also have halibut, spot prawns, herring, salmon caviar, blackcod, and king crab. Check out there website here: http://www.icystraitseafoods.com/

    They seem to be very legit. If anyone buys this brand let me know!

    I don't know that brand, but that's approximately what I pay for frozen wild salmon at my supermarket.

      Well, when I showed my Dad he was really surprised. I was too. I wonder if anyone else has heard of the brand... I am so glad I found this though. I will be eating a lot more salmon now

        I used to shop at Meijer, growing up in MI. I miss it! I get wild pacific salmon (frozen sockeye) for very cheap at Trader Joe's. Thank goodness for TJ's!

          Hey, a Michigander! Where in MI did you grow up? Where do you live now? I hope to move out of here soon... I also plan on traveling all over. Not sure where I want to end up though - I need to explore more

          No Trader Joe's here... but we need one!

            I don't usually endorse WalMart (especially their produce), but they have frozen Wild Caught Salmon 2 lbs for $7. I've had it many times and it's very good.

              2 lbs. for $7? Are you sure it is true Wild salmon? Is it Atlantic? If its the real deal then I need to stock up immediately. I am just beginning to realize how awesome salmon is for you.

                From what I've checked up on - it is. Caveat: It says product of China on the package. I've done the obligatory web search and, from what I've been able to find, it's caught in Alaska, shipped to China for processing/packaging, and shipped back to the USofA for sale at your friendly neighborhood (sarcasm) WalMart. Distributed out of Seattle. They advertise the Marine Stewardship Council’s (MSC) approval label on the package.

                Some reviews on the web are not positive, but I had it last night and it was very good. Then again – my wife is a wonderful cook.

                  Hey Dosenberry!
                  I lived in Travese City until I was 11 and then in Grand Haven, so not too far from GR. I've been in Nashville, TN for almost 13 years, but I go to TC every summer and, when I can make it, in the fall (SO pretty!)

                    Distributed out of Seattle by way of China?
                    Makes no sense what so ever.

                    Personally, I question anything out of China - for myself and my dog.

                          Thanks for that. I may have to try it out. I don't shop at wal-mart ever, but I may have to stop in to grab 10 lbs. of salmon - lol.

                            Nice! I have been to traverse city a few times - very nice place. My goal is to purchase my first home this summer. It is possible that it may be in traverse city!
