Copper River Salmon
So this morning a dear friend and I went to the Southside Farmers Market. Well in Alaska, we don't have a lot of veggies right now, only starts and flowers. We got some great fresh bread, and some cheese curd and some COPPER RIVER SALMON! We went early so that we could get a good pick. usually this fish sells for a huge amount in restaurants.... about $30 or more a plate. We got ours for $6 a pound.
So to honor this first salmon to run our rivers... I cooked it with a dry rub called COHO MOJO. I got this spice from Summit Spices here in town. They are great! They will even make a special rub, spice or tea for you!
On one filet, I distributed 2 TBS of butter, sprinkle in the Coho Mojo cover with tinfoil and bake at 375 for 15-20 min. Don't over cook it!
