Hot-smoked Copper River Chinook salmon. The new season is just getting going, and Costco is selling twitchy-fresh whole fish for $8/lb here in Seattle. Eat your hearts out, America.
I split them open, then smoke and serve them whole for maximum, Game of Thrones effect. This is the Pacific North West, so I smoke with alder. Prep on the fish? A little butter, lemon juice, dab of cayenne, is all.
