Fresh Copper River Sockeye Salmon Fillets

for $9.99 a pound at the local Safeway.

Do I run or walk to the store?

If this is a good price, Breezy, I'm thinking acres of ziploc freezer bags and spending all my overtime money. Am I right?

I'm in Seattle and Costco here has whole CR Sockeye for 6.99 so I'd say go for it. If its flown in and is truely fresh - smells like sea water- then plan on at least 1/2# per person. Much of this years catch is about 1 1/2# per side slab. It has been so good, I'm afraid my skin may turn pink from the amount of over indulgence we;ve done.

Bug, if you really want to do a test, get both the farm raised Atlantic crap and the Copper River, then cook them the same and try them side by side.

I'm sitting here, land-locked and heart-broken, thinking of how delicious that fish will be. I've never had anything but the canned.

Ironchef has a good point, just don't waste too much money on that Atlantic Farm "FISH"; unlike its wild name sake itis still really mild tasting comparitivelyflavorless], that would be a good test to learn. The bad part is you might give up the only normal source for salman you have.

Now Ironchef, please give a comparison of the New Zealand King farm raised salman and the Atlantic that are both often available where you are [HI?].

By the by, if you can get it, in about a month, the Yukon River salmon return to so no salmon have more natural oils as no river is as long for the fish to swim without eating- son 2000+ miles.

The New Zealand product is better, although of course not as good as Wild King. But would I use that over the Atlantic stuff? Absolutely.
