White King salmon are an extremely rare, naturally occurring subset of wild King salmon. Essentially albino King salmon, white Kings possess beautifully marbled white to light pink flesh while still delivering the same the succulent flavor and texture of pigmented King salmon.
Because less than 1% of all wild King salmon are white, white King salmon (aka ivory King salmon) they are in very limited supply.
Wild King salmon (aka Chinook or Tyee Salmon) is the largest of the five species of Pacific salmon. King salmon deserves its royal title because of its large flake size, firm flesh, and the highest fat content of all the salmon species, which accounts for its rich flavor.
