Costco's Wild Alaskan Marinated Salmon - Amazing Fish!
Morey’s Marinated Wild Alaskan Salmon at Costco
I absolutely love salmon, so I had to pick up a box of Morey’s marinated Wild Alaskan Salmon when it was on sale at Costco.
I’ve tried most of Costco’s other salmon options, including their fresh salmon, their frozen salmon, and even their cedar plank salmon, and this may be the last of their current salmon items that I haven’t tried yet.
A box of Morey’s Marinated Wild Alaskan Salmon from Costco weighs 36 ounces and contains six fillets (6 ounces each). The wild-caught Alaskan Salmon is frozen and marinated with a backyard barbecue seasonings blend.
The frozen salmon fillets are also individually wrapped for convenience. The salmon also comes skin-on, which is a big plus for me!

Costco Cost Comparison
At Costco, the 36 ounces of marinated Alaskan salmon retails for $23.99 or $10.66 per pound. This is on par with Costco’s prices for their fresh salmon, so there isn’t a huge markup for the marinated salmon.
I snagged the wild Alaskan salmon on sale for $18.99. Costco had a $5 discount, bringing the price per pound of wild Alaskan salmon down to $8.44, making the salmon an absolutely fantastic deal.
Marinated Salmon Taste Test
I followed the baking instructions for the marinated salmon, and everything was super tasty. I will also say the convenience of the easy-peel pouches was great. I could easily transfer the salmon from the packaging to the baking sheet with no mess and no hassle.
I probably could have cooked my salmon for maybe a minute less, but the salmon was still and moist and, most importantly, flavorful.
The backyard barbecue seasoning lived up to its name and provided a ton of smoky mesquite tasting goodness.
Despite maybe being slightly overcooked, the salmon remained detectable and was a great salmon experience.
I love salmon skin, but because of the marinade, this salmon skin didn’t get super crispy which was a little bit of a letdown. Still delicious nonetheless, but I would have liked a crispier salmon skin.
There are some frozen marinated products that I know I can flavor better, but Morey’s did a fantastic job of flavoring and prepping the salmon. Well worth the buy!
How to Cook Costco’s Marinated Salmon
Before I get into the cooking directions, Morey’s lists some tips to better cook the Alaskan Marinated Salmon from Costco.
- For bolder flavor, pour all the marinade in the pouch over the fillet before cooking.
- Fish thickness may affect cooking time. Thoroughly cooked fish will flake with a fork.
- Skin is left on for added moisture and ease of cooking but can be easily removed with a spatula after the fish is cooked, before serving.
- The recommended cooking method is in a conventional oven or grill.

This is an extremely healthy nutritional profile. Salmon is naturally one of the best proteins to consume due to their high amount of omega-3 fatty acids, in addition to their high protein count.
