    Default The Copper River salmon thread

    Where have you seen it? How much was it? How are you preparing it?



    I just got back from Costco. They have gorgeous, huge filets there for $13.99/lb. Can't wait to throw it on the grill with my citrus marinade recipe. NOM!

    I was just up in Seattle and they had it at Pike Place Market and at other restaurants. We ate at SeaStar and they had it on the menu, but it was more expensive so I stuck with regular King Salmon. I doubt that I would have noticed the difference.

    Homer you would have noticed the difference. Copper River chinook has the highest fat content of all the chinook/salmon. As a result it ends up turning out to be like eating butter. It is the richest tasting and most delicate salmon I have ever had. All this said you have got to get some and grill it up.

    I bought a full four lb. whole fish last week and had it cut into two large fillets. I grilled the first one last Monday and it grilled up as the most delicate fish I have grilled but it grilled up nicely. It is difficult to grill up and you need to really watch it when you grill it up. I used my Tequila-Lime recipe I provided in the grill thread. I can highly recommend it.

    Oh and the last thing. I paid $9.99 a lb. and about $41. for my two fillets. We can't wait to grill up the other fillet. This is a huge deal when the salmon come into Seattle. They talk about it on the local news when it is arriving. Whole fish have been on sale for the last two weeks at $9.99 a lb. and the fillets will start this week at our local super market at $13.99 a lb.

    Enjoy it while you can peoples.

    Kind of pissed I did not order, thanks. I recommend Seastar, the crab corn bisque was great.

    I've been checking Von's and Ralph's and nothing yet. They say they haven't even gotten a memo on it yet.
