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!
