Copper River Wild Sockeye Salmon
May 22nd, 2014
The Copper River Wild Sockeye Salmon is flown in fresh from Alaska and is a wonderful piece of fish. It’s rich in Omega 3’s and rich in flavor. Light marinades and simple grilling will showcase its wonderful flavor. This fish has firm meat and is bright orange-red in color. It has the reddest flesh of all wild salmon. This fish is best when baked, broiled, grilled or poached and it is comparable to Chinook or Coho salmon as well as Rainbow Trout.
