What color should fresh Wild King Salmon filets be??

skunker | Jul 26, 201410:19 AM     13

Hey all,
I was at my local grocery store and saw they had wild caught King salmon on sale ($14.99/lb). However, I noticed that the filets were NOT red/pink...they were more of a yellowish color. I saw the filets of the "farm" Sockeye salmon next to it and they were very pink.

Is the wild caught King salmon supposed to be that type of color or is the red/pink farmed Sockeye injected with some kind of red dye to make it look like that?

Also, they said they would cook it for me ...but I noticed they had a George Foreman grill and that they used the actual kitchen for frying stuff. Is the Foreman grill ok to use?

Thanks!!
