Ingredient: Copper River Salmon

n. species of migratory fish that can live in both salt + fresh water, found in the Copper River of Alaska

Right now, and I mean NOW, is the time to get some Copper River Salmon. It is only available for about 1 month per year, and the time is nigh. The season typically runs from mid-May to mid-June.

I purchased some very fine specimens at our local fishmonger this past week. So very tasty. What makes Copper River Salmon so special? The Copper River is a chilly, rapid filled river that runs through Alaska and produces a particularly strong and hearty salmon, chock full of healthy oils and fat. The meat has a distinctive deep, rich orangey-pink color... much more vibrant than other varieties of salmon. Copper River Salmon is also wild-caught, which makes it a better choice for you and the environment. Try it. You'll love it.
