For the Hot Sauce Enthusiast
It’s never a bland moment with Yai’s Thai’s Paleo, Whole30 approved, and gluten-free hot sauces and salsas. We love that Yai’s Thai uses simple and healthy ingredients without sugar or artificial ingredients. Yai means grandmother in Thai, and this line of Whole30 condiments used traditional Thai ingredients for unique, bold and zesty flavors that pair well with everything from eggs to fish and beef. The hot salsa packs quite a punch. It’s the perfect balance of these simple ingredients, tomatoes, onions, ginger, cilantro, garlic, organic lime juice, sea salt, thai chilis, and black pepper. I love the ginger, cilantro, lime add to the salsa; it makes for a unique and refreshing salsa, unlike any I’ve had before.
For the Ice Cream Connoisseur
For the Pasta Lover
For the Seafood Lover
Caught in Bristol Bay, Alaska, Wild Alaska Direct offers 100% natural, wild caught and sustainably sourced Sockeye Salmon. Matt Aboussie, Owner and Fisherman of Wild Alaska Direct, is dedicated to harvesting the Bay’s salmon in a sustainable way that supports Alaska’s ecosystem, while also supporting and promoting the wild salmon harvest. Bristol Bay is a unique fishery – it’s remote, pristine, and the rivers and tributaries leading in to the Bay are a near perfect habitat for salmon to spawn and grow. The state of Alaska regulates its fisheries to allow for a healthy spawn event, hence ensuring robust future return of salmon. To give you an idea of the amount of salmon that live in the Bay, this year boosted over 50 million sockeye.
When you order from Wild Alaska Direct you’ll receive convenient, individually vacuum sealed portion sizes of flash-frozen salmon. Flash freezing at the time of catch locks in flavor and freshness. This Sockeye Salmon is juicy, flavorful, and fresh, without being oily or fishy tasting. Even with only salt added to it, it’s perfection. With 85% of seafood being imported, buying from Wild Alaska Direct ensures you’re receiving freshly caught Alaska fish that support our nation’s fishery.
