Copper River Wild Salmon
Copper River Seafoods Wild Salmon is by far one of the best frozen, wild caught, salmons I have ever had! Actually, the whole family thinks so too. From what I see, this fish is truly wild caught in Alaska. Finding good salmon is getting harder these days.
Either they are farm raised and advertised "wild" or "dyed" with a chemical to turn their flesh pink/red, so to find salmon that truly is from Alaska is a "great catch" indeed. (From what I gather if fish comes from Alaska, it is probably not farmed, since Alaska doesn't allow farming.)
For you local folk, I actually found this bag at our local Sam's Club. So, next time you shop, look for this salmon and give it a try... just be sure you cook it in a healthy oil! (We baked ours with a dab of coconut oil and seasoning, skin side down (see recipe below - delicious!)
For this salmon:
Thaw vacuum sealed pieces in cool water.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place skin side down on pan.
Spray with coconut oil spray or just dab on coconut oil in generous amounts.
Season and bake (sea salt, pepper, or a favorite "fish" seasoning) for approximately 25-30 minutes, until desired texture.
Enjoy with a low carb side dish or make extra and eat cold the next day!
Use your favorite fish seasonings :)
