Have you ever heard of Copper River Salmon?

The Copper River Salmon organization fishes the pristine Copper River in Alaska for a few months every year, then ships it all over the country to excited chefs and the guys at the seafood counters. The salmon is some of the best I’ve ever had – full of flavor, gorgeous color and many milligrams of those amazing omega-3 fatty acids!

This year, I’ve partnered with the Copper River Salmon team to track down and locate the stores and restaurants where you can find the prized Copper River Salmon.

Last week I received the first shipment of salmon, so we’ve been eating lots of fresh salmon. It has been absolutely heavenly – I feel so spoiled!

We’ve been keeping things pretty simple and enjoying…

  • Butter Roasted Salmon from Mark Bittman (butter + salt + pepper in the oven)
  • Salmon Ceasar Salads + Avocado Dressing from Laurens Latest
  • Salad Greens + Miso Asian Dressing + Salmon + Fried Egg (sounds crazy, tasted amazing)

 

So head out to your local stores and restaurants and get some Copper River Salmon while it is here! I promise you’ll thank me. Be sure to let me know where you find it and you can upload it, or I’ll upload the locations for you.

    Yes, I had never heard about this kind of salmon before yesterday. My Mom picked some up and we gave some to the baby. He loves it and we are happy that salmon from such a trusted source canbe incorporated into his diet.

    My favorite! So pretty and flavorful. It is only available for a short time so I always try to do at least one meal with it.

    Yes, it was done out of necessity because I had a tiny piece of salmon left over, but it ended up being really good! I do love salmon in eggs, so I guess I should have known!

    I’m not sure that I’ve ever had Copper River salmon but I would love to try it. It looks like they sell it at the Whole Foods near me so I will definitely check it out next time we go! Love the idea of salmon with a fried egg. :)
