I am one fish murdering SOB... I have caught and eaten very many salmon.. lots. lots and lots... family tradition for well over 50 years. we smoke, freeze, pickle, and can salmon every year. freezing is the most fickle... there are ways but there are limits
favorite recipe is actually the old Juneau halibut recipe. 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream, mix in huge amounts of dill, a chop of onion, and a grind of pepper. you can use green onion too . you can also add chive. totally coat the fish and bake at 450 until the top turns brown. its done when the meat slides off the skin and the skin sticks to the pan (foil covered baking sheet)
king is the best (Chinook), and the tail is the best of the best
It’s pretty good. I could be happy to be reincarnated as a bear at Brooks Falls and fatten up on the skins. I love it. But it’s a near certainty it will be overcooked if you order it at a restaurant unless it’s a sushi place.
My family and I eat it a lot. It's high in Omegas which are good for you, etc. Is it the "best" food?? Health-wise, it's definitely one of the best ones you can eat for your diet but, I don't know if it's THE best when compared to all the other superfoods that are out there. How it tastes of course is completely subjective.A co-worker of mine said that salmon is "the best food." Is it? I've like salmon patties but not baked very much!
