Wild Copper River salmon

salmon

Wild salmon already counts as a wonder food in most people’s (cook)books. Yes, it’s abundant in vital nutrients. But let’s go back to basics: It tastes great, especially served piping hot from the grill, those edges just a wee bit crispy, or roasted in the oven, letting out a fragrant bit of steam with every forkful.

What’s so special about Copper River salmon? It’s the high oil content, stored up from the salmon’s long journey along the nearly 300-mile Copper River. That extra oil makes the fish among the richest, tastiest fish in the world, tender and moist whether roasted or grilled. Add it to your dinnertime rotation as another great spring tradition.
