Savory Sea Kelp & Sesame Salmon Bites

MADE BY DEAR NORTH IN JUNEAU, ALASKA

MOUTH SAYS...

Ever wish you could keep sushi in your desk drawer? Sushi that didn’t go bad or need to be refrigerated? Salmon Bites to the rescue!

Dear North is owned by Alaska natives with ancestral roots in Glacier Bay, a 3.3 million acre National Park with rugged mountains, tons of wildlife and, you guessed it, glaciers. To make these tender, protein-packed (15 grams – no kidding!), omega-rich bites, they wild-catch Coho salmon in Alaska’s clear, cold, overfishing-protected waters. The filets are cut into bite-size pieces, smoked, infused with an umami-packed brine of soy sauce and mirin, then tossed in crunchy sea kelp and sesame seeds.

It’s a little more moist than typical jerky (no chemical additives, preservatives, dyes or colorings!) and will melt in your mouth like fresh fish. What a catch. 

TIP OF THE TONGUE
