What luck! We've netted another batch of king salmon for this week. I know we've said it before, but this time will be the last wild salmon of the season.
To review: there are 6 different types of salmon (king—also known as chinook—Atlantic, sockeye, coho, pink, and chum). Of these, the king salmon is the largest and fattiest, and it is considered to be the most flavorful. It is the highest of all the salmons in omega-3s, and its high natural oil content gives its meat an especially rich taste. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Low mercury level. Kosher.
