Ironchef - I did mention that the fish looked really sad, but the manager wasn't there at the time - not that it would have done a lot of good. Over the years I've found that Safeway is one supermarket that knows less than nothing about seafood. And a discount wouldn't have made any difference. The fish was clearly WAY past its prime. The centers looked downright rotten.

On a cheerier note - I just recently returned from my local gourmet/organic market where I picked up a pound of absolutely GORGEOUS wild Copper River Sockeye salmon ($15.99 per pound) that looked as fresh & pristine as all getout. This particular market gets their seafood from the same purveyor who supplies The Inn At Little Washington, which is about 30 minutes from me & has been rated one of the top restaurants in the WORLD. So obviously the seafood I buy from there is always terrific.

While at the market, I also picked up lovely Belgian endive, dill, baby bok choi, tiny fingerling potatoes, & baby red onion scallions.

I'm thinking that tonight I'll broil the salmon topped with lemon-dill butter & serve it with the endive - Garlic/balsamic-vinegar braised.
