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:

  • Premium Sitka Seafood Share (starts at $129 per month)
  • Sitka Seafood Share (starts at $119 per month)
  • Sitka Salmon Share (starts at $119 per month)
  • Sitka White Fish Share (starts at $119 per month)

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 G4MFish for a discount on any 2021 Sitka Seafood Share that is purchased by July 31st. 

What Comes in the Box 

When your box arrives, it’ll contain dry ice to keep the fish 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, which help you jumpstart your meal plan if you’re new to cooking the specific type of fish that you receive.

Large Recipe Cards

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:

  1. They implement a hook-and-line method that minimizes the negative ecological impact. 
  2. Their fishermen receive approximately 10-30% more for their harvest, which could be an extra $10,000 of income each season for fishermen. 
  3. They donate a percentage of their gross 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 Media box, I received salmon and halibut.

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, Salmon is pretty much the only fish that I’ll readily eat, but I must admit that the halibut was a big hit at the dinner table. 

Additionally, based on the salmon that I normally get from the grocery store, you can definitely taste a difference when compared to Sitka Salmon Shares salmon.  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 highly recommend Sitka Salmon Shares (I’ve now had 2 positive experiences with them), 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 2021 Premium Sitka Seafood Share make sure you use the code G4MFish

What We Made

We had a nice fish dinner!

The halibut was pan-seared and the salmon was made using the PowerXL Smokeless grill

For the sides, we kept it simple with freshly sauteed green beans and rice. 

The entire meal took less than an hour to make.

Everything turned out delicious and we even had leftovers after feeding a family of five.
