Sockeye Salmon and Weekend Specialties 6.18.15 June 17 2015 Posted in

Sockeye Salmon runs have started in earnest and the product is looking great.  We have a nice shot coming in for this weekend and should expect to see it regularly through August. Sockeye are Wild-caught in rivers throughout the Pacific Northwest using a variety of methods including trolling, seines and gillnets. This week's catch comes from Kodiak, Alaska and was caught using gillnets.  Sockeye have a mild salmon taste and a delicate, colorful and large flaked flesh.  Not sure how to cook it? try this recipe
