Smoked salmon is just delicious, as part of a salad, sushi, or by itself. In the past couple decades, many companies have been expanding the flavors and smokes of wild caught salmon to basically have any flavor and fit with any style cuisine. However, it hasn’t been until very recently that it was economical to buy wild smoked salmon online. Your best option was farm raised smoked salmon in that little area of the freezer section in the grocery. Now delicious smoked salmon, caught in the wild, by nearly every species (sockeye, king, keta, coho), cut thin, in portions or filets, are available online from multiple companies at various price levels. We have pulled in the prices of their smoked salmon and compiled them in various grids below, then linked to their product pages for a quick shopping experience.
Compare Wild Smoked Salmon Prices
Before getting into the various salmon species below, we want to take a few minutes to talk about pricing. As you will see in all of these grids, each company has its own way of creating pricing standards for selling their wild smoked salmon online through their websites. Some provide free shipping, some provide free shipping if you buy over a certain amount (typically $99), and some never offer free shipping. Some companies require several pounds for a minimum order and some will sell you a 4 oz portion. It’s hard to compare each company properly, when we don’t know how much you are looking to buy. For nearly every company, their price/lb decreases the more you buy, as well as their removal of shipping costs. We have organized each company by the minimum cost to bring their product in the door. You may want more smoked salmon than their minimums, but you will be able to eyeball who is the most cost effective. What we can’t truly offer is who is best at smoking salmon. We don’t have any company listed on this page that has bad ratings or is otherwise a poor smoker of fish.
Smoked Sockeye Salmon
Smoked Sockeye salmon is probably the most popular. Sockeye has the most robust natural flavor of any salmon species without being so amazing that it isn’t worth smoking. This is the most prevalent species to find in your local store, but wild smoked sockeye is far less abundant than the farm-raised species at Kroger. In fact, for the companies we have listed on this page, they mainly only sell smoked sockeye. We have their comparison grid below.
Smoked Keta Salmon
Smoking Keta Salmon is probably the best option for this salmon species, which is known in the industry for being the least tasty of the salmon options according to people in the know. You don’t want to waste good fish, even if its cousins have far superior taste, and this type of smoked salmon is economical and a good pairing for someone eating large quantities who is also using it with other ingredients. Now look, that is just fishermen talking. Eat what you think is good and buy what you want. We have had the and found it to be delicious and to stand up well to its cousins. In the below comparison grid are a few companies that we recommend for buying keta wild smoked salmon online.

|Marx Foods||5 lbs||$26.00||$129.00||FREE|

Smoked King Salmon
There are plenty in this industry who believe you should never smoke King Salmon. It is too premium to put it through another process or frankly NEED to smoke it.
