Dear North shows salmon jerky, smoked salmon at SENA
Alaska salmon processor Dear North is showing both its Salmon Bites and a new smoked sockeye salmon at Seafood Expo North America in Boston, Massachusetts, 19 to 21 March, at Booth No. 2986.
The Juneau, Alaska-based company’s wild Coho Salmon Bites, won first place in the Alaska Symphony of Seafood’s 24th annual competition. The high-protein snack is brined, then “cooked low and slow for a tender texture that isn’t achieved with traditional jerkies,” the company said in a statement.
“Featuring local ingredients, we created four flavor profiles never before experienced in bite-sized salmon snack,” the company said. Flavors include Spicy Fireweed Honey, Savory Sea Kelp and Sesame, Wild Alaska Spruce and Salted Rhubarb & Raspberries.
Dear North is also touting a new flavor of its Smoked Sockeye Salmon flavor, Coriander and Malabar Pepper.
“Inspired by Turkish flavors of coriander, mustard, paprika, garlic and Malabar pepper, our new addition is a perfect complement to our Savory Fireweed flavor,” the supplier said.
“In a place as exquisite as our home of Alaska, you embrace what is essential so as to live in harmony with the extreme elements of the environment,” said Russell Dick, CEO of Huna Totem Corporation, the owner of Dear North. “Salmon is a vital part of the Alaska lifestyle.”
