Sunday/ salmon from the Copper River

This is some sockeye salmon from the Copper River that I grilled in the oven simply as is. cooked. The meat is redder and more flavorful than most other salmon.

The limited catch of wild salmon from the Copper River in Alaska arrived in Seattle on Friday.  ‘Copper River’ salmon is not a species .. the salmon from there could be King, Sockeye or Coho, as explained on the web site



And check out this picture (from Associated Press) with the Alaska Airlines crew showing off a big old salmon that has just been flown in.  Makes me wonder if they had it on board inside the plane.  And better watch out! those uniforms may need to be sent to the cleaners immediately!
