Vital Choice mail order seafood review

forzagto | Mar 29, 200912:41 PM     8

I ordered a few items from Vital Choice after seeing a few comments posted on their seafood quality. The two items that I purchased was a box of the sable fish lox and the canned wild salmon traditional style, which includes edible skin and bones.
I purchased the sable fish because it seemed like a unique item and since my favorite type of sashimi is white tuna (sable fish) I was hoping for a similar buttery taste and texture with the lox. I would say that it did fall a little short in comparing to taste to a quality piece of white tune sashimi but maybe this is sort of an unfair comparison for mail order seafood, however for the price I do not think I will reorder this. It tastes good and I look forward to the rest of my packages but for the price in my mind it is not worth the premium.
Regarding the canned salmon again it is not a direct or maybe fair comparison but I have been looking for a canned salmon for quite some time that at least has similar characteristic of that melt-in-your-mouth, buttery, fatty taste and texture of a nice piece of sashimi or seared rare piece of grilled salmon. This canned salmon is exactly what I have been looking for and thought might not exist. The texture, oils, color and flavor hit in all aspects and will be my exclusive source for canned tuna for now on. If you are looking for a quality canned salmon I highly recommend you place and order and it is not too much more expensive than lesser quality options.
I look forward to trying a few of their other seafood items and more of the wild traditional style canned salmon.
