Copper River Salmon: Hype or Haute

The first of this year’s Copper River salmon catch is about to hit Dallas. Our friend Jon Alexis at TJ’s says, “It’s the best salmon on the planet. Richest flavor, most perfect texture and highest concentration of healthy Omega-3 oils…rarely is something so tasty AND so healthy!”

I love all wild salmon from Alaska, but the fish from Copper River has the overpowering flavor of marketing. Maybe we’ll do a blind tasting sometime during the short 3 to 4 week season. TJ’s expects their shipment “by this weekend or early next week.”
