Different types of Salmon

Orakin Orakin Salmon, known as King salmon, is renowned for its large size and high oil content. This species is native to the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. The Orakin Salmon’s succulent flesh boasts a rich, buttery taste, making it a favorite among chefs for creating luxurious and indulgent dishes.
Blue LabelBlue Label Salmon, often referred to as Sockeye salmon, is distinguished by its vibrant flesh. It is primarily harvested in the pristine waters of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. This type of Salmon is favored for its firm texture and intense flavor, which lends itself beautifully to a variety of culinary preparations.
NorwegianNorwegian Salmon, also known as Atlantic salmon, is one of the most sought-after salmon varieties globally. It is cultivated in the cold, clear waters of Norway. Norwegian Salmon is renowned for its delicate flavor making it a perfect choice for those who prefer a milder taste.
ScottishScottish Salmon is native to the clear and fast-flowing waters of Scotland’s rivers. It is appreciated for its superior quality and outstanding taste. Scottish Salmon has a distinct flavor profile, combining richness and sweetness, making it an exceptional choice for sophisticated dishes.


One of the most delightful ways to prepare Orakin Salmon is by grilling it to perfection and serving it with a luscious lemon butter sauce. The smoky char from the grill complements the salmon’s natural richness, while the tangy lemon butter sauce adds a burst of flavor.  

Recipes for Orakin Salmon include Grilled Salmon with Citrus Glaze, Pan-Seared Salmon with Garlic Butter, Baked Salmon with Herb Crust, and Salmon and Shrimp Kebabs. These dishes are relatively simple but sure to impress your guests.

Blue Label

For a unique and elegant culinary experience, Blue Label Salmon can be transformed into exquisite sushi rolls. The vibrant flesh of the Blue Label Salmon contrasts beautifully with the white rice, while avocado and cucumber add a refreshing twist to the rolls. 

Dishes using Blue Label Salmon can range from simple grilled fillets to more elaborate dishes like Salmon Ceviche, Salmon Tartare, and Salmon Carpaccio. For a truly special meal, you can serve a Blue Label Salmon Risotto, or a Salmon and Asparagus Tart.


Norwegian salmon’s delicate flavor shines in a refreshing tartare preparation. Finely chopped Norwegian Salmon is combined with zesty citrus, herbs, and a hint of olive oil. The result is a light and flavorful dish that tantalizes the taste buds. 

Recipes using Norwegian Salmon can be used to create delicious and simple dishes. A simple glaze of butter, honey and garlic can be used to roast the salmon, which can be accompanied by a side of steamed vegetables and flavorful potatoes for a complete meal.


To showcase the exceptional taste of Scottish Salmon, encrusting it with aromatic herbs and breadcrumbs adds a layer of texture and flavor. Roasting the salmon to perfection allows the herb crust to form a delightful contrast to the soft texture of the fish. 

Scottish Salmon recipes such as Grilled Scottish Salmon with Dill Sauce, Scottish Salmon with Brown Butter, and Baked Scottish Salmon with Creamy Mustard Sauce are delicious options for pairing with wines.

The right wines can elevate the superyacht dining experience to new heights. Light-bodied white wines, such as Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay, complement the delicate flavors of Norwegian Salmon and Blue Label Salmon dishes. For the richer and bolder flavors of Orakin salmon and Scottish Salmon, a medium-bodied red wine like Pinot Noir or Merlot pairs splendidly.
