Pre-ordered Akaroa Salmon

Airflown Fresh Never Frozen

Unlike Nor¬≠we¬≠gian Atlantic Salmon which are typ¬≠i¬≠cal¬≠ly farm-bred, Akaroa King Salmon are reared in the wild seas of the Akaroa Har¬≠bour in New Zealand. The cr√®me de la cr√®me of salmons, deliv¬≠ered fresh, nev¬≠er frozen to your doorstep by the care¬≠ful team at The Bow Tie Duck! This is a pre-ordered item, air-flown from New Zealand every oth¬≠er week. 


Hand-fed with a unique diet in pens of 99% water to 1% fish ratio, these king salmons are slow¬≠ly raised, with¬≠out any hor¬≠mones or antibi¬≠otics to pro¬≠vide the best culi¬≠nary expe¬≠ri¬≠ence as close to sea-caught King Salmons possible.

While most salmons (includ¬≠ing most Nor¬≠we¬≠gian Atlantic salmons) are farm-bred, Akaroa King Salmon are reared in the seas of New Zealand. Akaroa King salmon is renowned for its fresh and sweet taste, silky tex¬≠ture and devoid of the oily after¬≠taste typ¬≠i¬≠cal of farmed salmon. And because our Akaroa salmon is air-flown chilled‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČnot frozen‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČexpect a fresh catch, with a springy when touched with a sub¬≠tle smell of the sea.

2 vari¬≠ants are offered: 

  • 350g cut portion
  • approx. 1‚ÄČ‚Äď‚ÄČ1.5kg Whole Fil¬≠let, Bone out, Skin On


A pre¬≠mi¬≠um cut of Akaroa King Salmon can be pre¬≠pared in end¬≠less ways, pan-seared, baked with fresh herbs, a hearty seafood soup, or a beau¬≠ti¬≠ful gravlax.

Our go-to din¬≠ner prepa¬≠ra¬≠tion is a pan-seared salmon rest¬≠ing on top of silky mashed pota¬≠toes and blanched spring beans, gar¬≠nished with Terre Exotique‚Äôs Fleur de Sel Guerande salt for a sea¬≠soned crunch. Pair with a Sauvi¬≠gnon Blanc or our Mar de Frades Albari¬≠no for a beau¬≠ti¬≠ful ending. 


A com­pa­ny com­mit­ted to rear­ing supe­ri­or qual­i­ty salmons, Akaroa’s sim­ple phi­los­o­phy of rear­ing salmons that pri­ori­tis­es the health and wel­fare of the fish whilst being respect­ful to the envi­ron­ment have suc­ceed­ed in mak­ing it one of the top arti­san pro­duc­ers sup­ply­ing New Zealand’s best salmons to New Zealand’s best restaurants.

While the best salmon are wild and sea-caught, the qual¬≠i¬≠ty of Akaroa‚Äôs sea-reared salmon is com¬≠pa¬≠ra¬≠ble, with the proof being in its oil con¬≠tent (a high oil con¬≠tent in salmons typ¬≠i¬≠cal¬≠ly results in an oily after¬≠taste that masks the flavours of the fish). Farmed salmon have an oil con¬≠tent of around 30%, sea-caught wild King Salmons of around 9% while Akaroa‚Äôs King Salmon have an oil con¬≠tent of only 10%.
