Copper river salmon is here! It’s available only 3 or 4 weeks per year, and it’s very expensive (3 times the price of other salmon). What is special about it? The Copper River flows in the state of Alaska; almost 300 miles in length, it is a wild rushing river that empties into Prince William Sound at the town of Cordova. Salmon that originate in these pristine waters are challenged by the river’s length and its strong, chill rapids. So Copper River salmon are strong, robust fish with a healthy store of natural oils and body fat – making them among the richest, tastiest fish in the world.
So I felt obliged to get some, and here is my dinner : ) .. I like my salmon plain : sans even butter or lemon juice. I didn’t have green asparagus that I usually stir-fry as the veggie to go with it, so I threw in some potato bread toast with marmalade.
