Here comes the salmon! Copper River salmon notes the start of the wild salmon season. “Barb Knivila – Copper River signals the start of the fresh wild salmon season. Keep your eyes peeled for wild king and wild sockeye out of Bristol Bay and other west coast fisheries!” Copper River salmon is just such a succulent type of salmon. Sweet. Not at all “fishy”. Very red meat. Great for steaming …. especially packet steaming. Add a little lime, lemon, French tarragon, sea salt and fresh Tellicherry pepper and you’ve got an awesome dinner. Better yet, let the fish marinate in this citrus over night in the refrigerator. Then add a little riesling wine for the fish to steam in. Yummers!
