King salmon is considered the most desirable and unique species of salmon in the world, sought after by experts for its superb culinary attributes – vibrant colour, melt in the mouth texture and rich flavour.
At Regal – we raise our King salmon in the majestic waters of New Zealand’s Marlborough Sounds. The unparalleled combination of King salmon, the marine environment, and the craftsmanship of our master smokers delivers an outstanding and luxurious taste experience.
King salmon makes up about 0.7% of the world’s salmon population. As the world’s largest producer of King salmon, we produce just over 50% of the world’s supply. So when you choose Regal New Zealand King Salmon, you can be sure you’re enjoying the finest salmon in the world. We challenge you to taste the difference.
Our Regal Cold Smoked Salmon is cured in a dry salt and sugar mix, smoked at a low temperature and then sliced. With its vibrant colour and sea-salt aroma, each delicate sliver has a velvety texture which delights the palate and melts in your mouth to leave a lingering, sweet smokiness. The unique qualities of Regal Cold Smoked Salmon add elegance to any dish. It is ideal for delicate finger foods and canapés where taste, texture and visual impact are important. However, it also tastes delicious on a simple bagel or cracker.
Our Regal Wood Roasted Salmon range is slowly roasted over aromatic woods, either au natural or with a subtle flavouring. Our Regal Wood Roasted King Salmon has a fragrant fusion of smoky aromas and sea salt, with a luxuriously buttery taste. It is a delight to eat hot or cold, on its own or in pasta or salad dishes or on a platter.
As well as being superb and a nourishing food, rich in protein, vitamins and minerals, Regal Marlborough King Salmon is a good source of healthy long chain omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are considered an essential fatty acid, necessary for human health, which the body cannot produce itself. Because Regal King Salmon is such a wonderful source of highly nutritious marine-based omega-3 fats, just one 100g serving will provide enough omega-3 to cover three days of your needs for women and two days for men.
Not only the best in terms of taste and nutritional quality, but our King salmon are also raised in one of the most sustainable ways possible. Regal New Zealand King Salmon has achieved the world-leading Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) 4 stars certification from The Global Aquaculture Alliance for our Hatchery, Farms, Factory and Feed.
In addition, the New Zealand King salmon industry received the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch ‘Green/Best Choice’ rating, the first marine-farmed salmon to achieve this rating. We have also
set a goal of 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging across our business by 2025.
