Seafood lovers, you’re in for a treat today.
I want to put a company by the name of Sitka Salmon Shares on your radar.
Someone contacted me some weeks back and after seeing their offerings on their website I was looking forward to receiving a PR box and it finally arrived, so today I’m sharing my thoughts on what I received with you guys today.
What is Sitka Salmon Shares
Sitka Salmon Shares delivers premium, sustainable, wild Alaskan seafood from fishermen directly to your doorstep.
However, this is a subscription-based food delivery service, so you do have to commit to paying for your “share” each month during the season. They allow you to pay on a monthly basis or you can save a little bit of money if you pay in full upfront.
What Are the Share Options
As of this writing, they currently have 4 share options available. All of which look pretty amazing in my opinion. They are as follows:
- Taste of Summer Share (starts at $99 per month)
- Sitka Salmon Share (starts at $119 per month)
- Sitka Seafood Share (starts at $119 per month)
- Premium Sitka Seafood Share (starts at $129 per month)
The Taste of Summer and Sitka Salmon Shares lasts for four months, the Sitka Seafood Share lasts for seven months, and the Premium Sitka Seafood Share lasts for 9 months.
You can find full details about what’s included in each of the shares and even compare shares to see what’s the best fit for you here. Make sure to use the code SITKA25 to take $25 off of any 2020 Premium Sitka Seafood Share.
What Comes in the Box
When your box arrives, it’ll contain dry ice to keep the food frozen. If you don’t plan to make the food within 24 hours simply transfer it to your freezer. In my case, we planned to have it the next day so we let the fish defrost in the fridge.
In your Sitka Salmon Shares box, you’ll find large recipe cards and a newsletter featuring the fishermen who caught the fish.
I just want to say that the “large” recipe cards were my favorite (outside of the salmon lol) because so many companies that send recipe cards send little index card-sized ones, which can be a huge pain when trying to follow the recipe.
Why You Should Try Sitka Salmon Shares
Sitka Salmon Shares is a company that is about so much more than making money. Some of the main reasons I would recommend you give them a try if you’re a seafood lover is as follows:
- They implement a hook-and-line method that minimizes negative ecological impact.
- Their fishermen receive approximately 20-30% more for their harvest, which could be an extra $10,000 of income each season for fishermen.
- They donate a percentage of their revenue to efforts promoting small scale fisheries and conservation in Alaska.
As you can tell from just those three things they are a community-focused company so you can feel confident when ordering from them that your business is actually helping.
Sitka Salmon Shares Review
Sitka Salmon Shares really exceeded my expectations. In the PR box, I received salmon and cod.
In my house, we typically have at least one salmon based meal per week. However, while I do love seafood, I’m not really a big fish person. In fact, out of all of the fish that I’ve tried salmon is the only one that I’ll eat….That was until I tried cod.
Additionally, based on the salmon that I normally get from the grocery store I could definitely taste a difference in the quality. I’m not sure if it’s because Sitka Salmon Shares blast freezes the fish at the peak of freshness to ensure it stays fresh or what, but they are definitely providing good quality fish.
Overall, I really enjoyed trying out Sitka Salmon Shares and I love the convenience of having fresh seafood delivered to my doorstep. If you’ve been looking for a seafood delivery subscription service this is definitely one to consider first.
Additionally, if you do sign up for a 2020 Premium Sitka Seafood Share make sure you use the code SITKA25 to get $25 off your share.
What We Made
We had a seafood feast!
The cod and salmon was seasoned with black pepper, Old Bay lemon pepper seasoning, seasoning salt, lemon juice, and lemon slices.
For the sides, we had corn, baked sweet potatoes, and cheese biscuits.
Everything turned out delicious and we even had leftovers after feeding a family of five.
Conclusion: Sitka Salmon Shares is Worth Checking Out
If you’re in the market for a fresh seafood subscription box, Sitka Salmon Shares is worth checking out.
What I received is just a small selection of what they have to offer. They also have other prized Alaskan caught seafood such as halibut, Kodiak black rockfish, Dungeness crab, spot shrimp, and more.
Do you think a seafood subscription box would be a good fit for your family? What are your initial thoughts on Sitka Salmon Shares?
