On a personal salmon side note, I have fond memories of my trip to Alaska where I got to go on an actual salmon fishing boat with a real Alaskan salmon fisherman and catch my very own salmon! I named her Sally.
Sally was filleted, flash frozen and shipped back to New Jersey for me to enjoy with my family when I returned home. Such a treat! Talk about fresh out of the water! Be sure to buy wild salmon, not farm raised, so that you get all those amazing health benefits!
