Help with Salmon

Yesterday I had the easy choice of a Cojo Salmon Filet for $8.99 per lb or a "Manager's Special" packaged at 5.99 per lb. Both were wild salmon but the $6 was ripe with fish smell! I went with the $9 but I have heard there is a way to get rid of the "fishy smell". Is this true and what do you suggest? Could a Brine do this? Thanks ahead of time for any helpful suggestions![p]Let's ALL RAISE THE BAR - B - Q!

    Wood Chuck,
    If fish smells like fish, go with the veal (or the fish that doesn't smell like fish). Fish should have no smell, or smell slightly of the sea, if it smells fishy it is past it's prime. You did the right thing! I'm thinking the manager made it a special because it had been around too long...
    (And fresh salmon is real good on the Egg : )[p]BestSalmonEver.jpg[p]jmho
