The restaurants around here ask if you want your salmon cooked rare, medium, or well-done. I haven't noticed that in other parts of the country.
Definitely NOT a sushi fan! or poke! or ceviche! Like runny yolks though. lol:

Funny, don't ever remember having salmon in a restaurant. Just not something I would order. Keep in mind I also can't remember the last time I went to a restaurant with enough quality to even serve salmon.

I've never noticed it with Atlantic salmon. I have had some really good stuff from Scotland.

Just the word 'runny yolk' puts me off, yet I can eat century egg, which puts off a lot of people. We each have such different tastes.

There are definitely regional differences in restaurants and experiences. I was at a national conference in Victoria BC, and, of course, salmon and other seafood was on the (excellent) buffet at a high-end hotel. Some of the people at my table were from Ontario & the Prairies, and more than one person had no idea what to do with the mussels, clams, oysters, and said they rarely ate fish.

On the other hand, I've been to conferences in Halifax where lobster was freely served, which is unusual here. We get a lot of crab, which is a lot more work to eat lol.

Virtually every restaurant here serves salmon, and specifies if it's wild caught or farmed. You can usually ask for an upgrade to wild, though wild salmon is typically served.

Dad was from the Maritimes. We often spent summers there. So fish and shellfish were not strangers to us in mid Ontario.

He used to have huge wood barrels of oysters shipped in for their annual anniversary every year (oct).

Oops, I meant did you notice the species of Pacific salmon.

LOL... is "annual anniversary" a bit redundant?

Only slightly. "Annual anniversary every year" is killing it, though

LOL, LVDeb, good one!

Actually after all this talk about salmon, got me a piece yesterday and threw it on the grill in foil. A rub of oil, sprinkle with S&P and a tiny bit of sugar....

DELISH!!!!!!
