Three words that are guaranteed to make a Pacific Northwesterner’s mouth water: Copper. River. Salmon. That’s right folks, its salmon season again. Glorious. Wonderful. Cholesterol friendly. Omega 3 filled salmon season. Salmon is great with many different sauces like caper sauce and dill sauce but it is also DE.LISH.IOUS. with mustard and dill.
I am not kidding you when I tell you that people in the Northwest go nutzo over this salmon. I mean seriously people, they have a news crew and chefs waiting on the landing strip for the plane to bring in the first delivery of this stuff. Perhaps one of the reasons for all the mayhem, besides the rich tastiness of this particular variety of salmon, is that copper river salmon season is far too short. In fact it is coming to a close as I type these words. With that said, any kind of salmon will work well in this recipe. Use whatever kind of salmon that you have in your area. And whatever you do, sometime in your life make it to the Pacific Northwest during Copper River season to try some yourself.
