There really is something fishy about the latest hot dogs in the meat case. That’s because AquaCuisine’s Wild Alaskan Smoked Salmon Franks are made with genuine wild, natural and sustainable Alaska salmon. They are naturally smoked, fully cooked, skinless and preservative- and gluten-free. Plus, each frank naturally provides 250 mg of essential omega-3 oils, contains 11 grams of protein and only 90 calories.
According to Mark Goforth, president of Eagle, Idaho-based AquaCuisine, the company philosophy is to demystify cooking with fish and to encourage consumers who are intimidated to experiment with simple yet delicious seafood solutions.
“We hope to introduce a whole new group of people to healthy food through a hot dog,” Goforth says. “We feel our salmon frank connects with the consumer both in-home and in-store with a meaningful value proposition. We are experiencing consumers spending more for our hot dog as they are for premium coffee, craft beer and Greek yogurt.”
AquaCuisine Wild Alaskan Smoked Salmon Franks come in a 12-ounce package of six franks and are priced comparable to premium beef hot dogs, with a suggested retail of $6.99. They are shipped frozen, and can be merchandised either frozen or thawed in either the hot dog or seafood section. They can also be sold loose in the service seafood or meat case. Once thawed, they have a 21-day shelf life.
