We recommend that you reserve as many shares as you will be able to consume in a year. A portion of 1 pound serves two adults. A 20# share would supply a salmon meal about every other week for a year for two adults. The salmon fillets are individually cut and portioned between 3/4 lb and 1 1/4 lb, vacuum-packed, and frozen for easy preparation. We will include details on thawing and cooking your salmon in your shipment. Order with family and friends and save on shipping.
