Saw it at Ralph's for $39.99 per pound for a fillet. For that price, it better be able to recite Shakespeare in proper 17th century British pronunciation.

Definitely thicker and harder to cook as it takes longer to finish off on the grill.

That's a beaut of a fish rinkrat. I'm gonna head up to the King tomorrow in Glendale and see if I can find it.
Also, noticed you like the asparagus with your salmon- nice combo! We're like minded there. I might throw some pan fried rosemary potatoes on there with an oaky Chard from the Alexander Valley or a chilled Spanish Rose to balance it out.
Edit- ok, at the recommendation of this board I have just dropped $24 on a filet of Copper River Salmon! Fish King has it for $39.99 a lbs. I had a tri-tip roast that I needed to cook off too so I busted that on the grill and I'm letting the salmon sit in a light dusting of salt/pepper/paprika with lemon juice/olive oil glazed on it. I'll probably do that one under the broiler later after the tri-top has sat for a bit. A little surf and turf action to follow! Let's see how it goes.

Finally had my first taste of the season last night. We did it Japanese style, which is to sprinkle just salt on the skin side only, and broil it skin side up. No flipping. Eaten very simply with grated daikon radish and a little shoyu and a squeeze of lemon. It WAS as tasty as remembered, and went well with a nice cold junmai-ginjo sake. $24.99 a pound for fillet.....

I did mine under the broiler. Made sure to not overcook it. Tasted great! I had the filet and I do have to say my piece was very thick and meaty. Maybe that's why mine was $40 per lbs. Fish King did not have the steaks afaik.

Vons was $29 per pound last weekend. I'll be waiting it out for a few more weeks.
PS Tritip roasts were 60% off. I got a 4 pounder for like $10.00
