The wild Alaska salmon of Maison Steur is
causing quite a stir. Thanks to its refined taste and outstanding
quality, this unique salmon variety is making its appearance on the menu
of more and more restaurants and other catering establishments.
Wild Alaska salmon (Pacific salmon) is the “cousin” of the popular
Norwegian salmon (Atlantic salmon). But the colour and structure of its
flesh is entirely different. Wild Alaska salmon hatch in rivers on the
west coast of North America, Canada and Alaska. The clear waters of the
Pacific Ocean, where the fish mature, provide an abundance of food for
the salmon in the form of shrimp, small lobster and other sea creatures.
This natural diet and life in the icy, clear waters turn the wild
salmon’s flesh an attractive red with a fine structure that guarantees a
firm “bite”. Pacific salmon is packed with healthy fats such as Omega-3
The wild Alaska salmon that Maison Steur buys are caught in a fully
sustainable manner, which also meets the strict requirements of the
Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). All wild salmon products are therefore
supplied with an authentic MSC certificate. Wild salmon are caught off
the coast of Alaska from July to September when the fish are ready to
swim back to the rivers where they came from. Alaska fishermen are quite
used to sustainable fishing methods and take the utmost care to preserve
their natural environment and their livelihood. Fish populations are
monitored meticulously. The fish are caught with hook and line instead
of nets; the wild salmon are instantly processed on board and then
immediately frozen or sold fresh.
Maison Steur buys its wild Alaska salmon only from companies that meet
the strict standards of the MSC. The distinctive and legendary Maison
Steur taste is achieved through manual and traditional processing
methods and an authentic smoking technique, which uses a wood blend that
is specially prepared in-house.
Maison Steur supplies wild Alaska salmon in whole and sliced fillets and
in the same packaging formats as that of the smoked Norwegian salmon: in
vacuum packs (100 grams) and in the well-known reduced-oxygen packaging
with the handy resealable lid (500 grams). Of course, the wild Alaska
salmon of Maison Steur is also available in a variety of promotional
gifts and Christmas hampers. For more information, visit
