Saturday we went to a salmon bake in Oregon at a wine event my wife and I are attending. Amazing experience. There were 1400 people in attendance - I've never seen so much food (and wine) in one place.

The salmon was attached to alder poles and smoked over an alder wood fire. Pretty neat how they did it.

Steve, if you can find Alder Smoked Salt, grab up a bit...

That salmon looks awesome!

Steve, I would happily parade that salmon around! Looks wonderful!

Steve, this is how the Salish Coast Indigenous folks up and down the PNW coast cook salmon. It's the best I have ever had! Lucky you!

Dawg, I asked my son what kind of shark it was and he replied "I don't know" but then last night he went out with friends and the guy he goes fishing with was along. He then told me it was blacktip shark.

Interesting. Thanks Jabbur! I didn't know you could eat them.

Glad it wasn't a Nurse shark, they're so cute!

When I was doing research on what to do with it, the websites all said the 2 most common sharks for eating are the blacktip and the mako. Blacktips are more common in shallower water and makos are found in deep water. Since I know he wasn't out that far, I thought it probably was blacktip but wasn't confident of that fact. Didn't know if there were other kinds in our area that it could have been.

I've never even seen shark of any kind on a menu. You were very brave! I have seen shark fin soup, but I would never eat it, very cruel practice. You at least made use of the whole fish.

Had shark once in a restaurant in San Francisco (Pier 39) many years ago. I found it uninteresting.
