I much prefer wild salmon over farm raised salmon as the flavour is totally different. Copper River Salmon is my favourite especially - Copper River salmon are bright silvery salmon with a bright red flesh, a firm texture, and a rich flavor that makes them a very delicious dining experience whose popularity is rapidly growing. They are avaiable from mid May to maybe the end of June or so. King, Sockeye, and Silver wild Copper River Salmon are available with the King being "the best". The PNW is a balze with celebrations of the arrival of Copper River Salmon. We are fortunate here in the SF Bay Area to also have access to fresh wild Copper River Salmon that is flown in daily during the short season. The legendary Copper River king salmon is among the most sought-after salmon in the world. These incredible salmon are prized for their superb flavor and texture. They are also well recognized for their high content of Omega-3 heart-smart oils. Cost? As low as $15 a pound to perhaps nearly $30 a pound. Not to be missed! I have NOTHING to do with this sdite-just thought some here would find it of interest.

How long to cook a 5 1/2# whole Copper River salmon, head, fins, tail removed, seasoned with thinly sliced gingerroot, onions and lemons, lemon-lime juice, foil wrapped? Also, what temperature is recommended?

For the whole salmon, allow 6-9 minutes for each 1/2 pound of fish. Leave the head and tail intact to allow the salmon to retain its natural juices. Appearance is the best gauge of doneness in salmon. When flesh is opaque and flakes easily. Ten-minute-per-inch rule also applies as a guide for cooking time. Measure the fish at its thickest part and cook 10 minutes for each inch of thickness. Cooking temperature will be about 375-400 degree F
