I just picked up some lovely salmon today. Basted it with extra virgin olive oil and added some a light dusting of Lowry's seasoning salt and some pepper. Baked to perfection and served with some red potatoes and steamed asparagus tips. Oh my gawd was it ever good!

Has to be Wild Caught.

Other than that... your eating something that has been swimming in a equal ratio of shit and feed.

What species? Mom bakes our kings with rice,lemon,onions,butter and a bunh of other stuff.
Link Posted: 7/19/2008 3:54:13 PM EST
Wild salmon only. The farm raised stuff is crap. It's fed dye, because due to the lack of actual exercise, the meat would be pale. It also lacks much flavor.

Grilled some yesterday.

Marinated it overnight in corn syrup, apple cider vinegar, and brown sugar. Very tasty.

Honestly, I don't recall...but they did have it posted. I've been waiting a while for them to get REAL salmon in the store, not the farmed crap. I was so ecstatic I didn't care about which species. It was wild and it was headed for my belly.

With grandma gone the only fish for me is smoked king salmon srtips or slabs.
When you have it readly available you can get tired of it.

No need to wait until it gets to your grocery store, order it online straight from Alaska.

I use northwest seafood good people.

I'm weird in that i prefer Atlantic salmon to the west coast variety.... probably because i grew up eating it.

The natural orange/red flesh color in wild salmon is from the shrimp they eat.

I googled it and yes, it's from their diet. Local paper was plain wrong, or just made it up.

More precisely it's a carotenoid called Astaxanthin.

They feed farm-raised salmon the same thing, just synthetically made.

The whole "artificial color" is BS. Wild salmon is not naturally red in color, it's only because of the diet.

Farmed or wild? There's a big difference.

I'm lucky enough to be inundated with fresh seafood...multiple salmon species, shrimp, crab, shellfish....sometimes I find myself saying "Shit, I'm tired of fish...I need a steak!"
Link Posted: 7/19/2008 5:03:02 PM EST
I love salmon, but sometimes it's too strong for me to eat. Not sure why that is, is it where it's from?

OMG - can I be your friend????
One of my best friends just got back from AK after an off shore King/Halibut fishing trip.
He only managed to bring back 45lbs, but it is great stuff.....
