Copper River salmon coming

Boats are on the water as we speak. And, if you really want to know what's going on...Plitt Seafood is keeping us informed on twitter.

What will happen once the fish hit the market? Prices are expected to be down from last year's peak of $50 per pound. Will you be buying this year? At what price will you jump on a fantastic, first-of-season wild Copper River king? Sockeye?

I can't wait.

And...my friend Dylan Tomine promises to produce something soon on the flavors and delights of many varieties of NW salmon. Soon we'll be savoring the varieties of salmon like some of us do already with wines and oysters. Hmmm...maybe right alongside wines and oysters!

In short the finer things in life...Copper River goodness.

No thanks. Maybe later next month when the CR chinook starts arriving (which should be a lot cheaper than the sockeye).

If you want oysters, I can't recommend Taylor's Virginicas and the medium Pacifics enough. Went through (with a little help from some friends) two dozen of each species last week while working offsite. Out. Of. This. World. But you gotta go to Taylortown (Shelton) or Fisherman's at interbay to get 'em.

tres_arboles,

actually, the kings are coming in right now as well and tend to be around $3 more a pound than the sox
