Our sole local fish monger finally got their annual shipment of these beautiful Copper River Salmon. Look at the rich deep red color! Granted at $22.95 a pound for King that's pricey, but hey it's worth to this land lubber!

No rubs to mask it. Doing a slow smoke with alder with just fresh lemon slices and some dill so as to let the richness of the meat shine by itself. Will be serving along with an acorn squash with butter and maple syrup.

    Just returned from Anchorage last week with 35 lbs of this. Not sure if it was copper river or not, but it sure tasted good. No time for pics. I did one rubbed with butter, then brown sugar and wrapped in foil. Very tasty! Couldn't pass it up at $6.99/lb., fileted, vacuum sealed and put on ice for the ride home.

    Good luck with it.

    That is a piece of salmon to die for. Best looking fillet I have ever seen. Let us know how it turns out.

    I am pretty sure it isn't a King (Chinook) - too small. It looks to be the perfect size to be a Sockeye or (Red).

    Copper River is some of the best wild salmon you can get. You got yourself a mighty fine fillet there.

    The flesh of the farm raised crap barely gets pink and they have th DYE the food to get it that way. If you can, pay more and buy Wild.

    How was it btw?
