Why It Pays To Get Costco Salmon In Bulk
By Arianna Endicott
Though salmon tastes great and has several health benefits, buying it week after week at the grocery store can be a little expensive. On the other hand, while purchasing salmon in bulk could initially cost a little more upfront, it actually winds up being more cost-effective, especially if you have access to a Costco membership.
Costco sells salmon for around $12.99 per pound, with packages typically containing up to three pounds and reaching just under $40 in total. Salmon can range from $9 to $30 per pound depending on the kind you purchase and where you buy it, and Costco sells farm-raised Atlantic salmon, which could cost up to $35 per pound when purchased elsewhere.
At Costco, each piece of salmon is typically up to a foot long, half a foot wide, and an inch and a half tall; they also come pre-skinned and pre-boned, making it easy to prep and cook in no time. However, if you prefer to meal prep, you can separate the fillets into smaller portions, rinse and dry them, and store them by freezing them in an air-tight container for up to six months.
