Latest update: First opener expected May 16th. Currently plan to ship Copper River salmon order the first week of June, uless arranged directly otherwise.
* PRICE INCLUDES EXPEDITED SHIPPING*
The Copper River King Salmon run is expected to start the the week of May 13th, 2013
- but you never know. Place your order now to reserve your salmon - as there is likely to be fewer runs and less fish this year.
We are also not sure of the final price -- so we have priced it high. If it turns out to be less than expected, we will decrease the price accordingly. If you need Salmon now, check out the troll-caught.
Place your order now -- but make sure you let us know when you want your fish to ideally arrive.
(Please, to be safe, we do not expect any orders to be shipped before the week of May 20th. More likely the following week.)
< That's because we don;t sell salmon caught during the first 2 weeks of the season -- it's just too expensive.
Preparation and Cooking
With salmon this good, preparation is a snap. We recommend grilling - it's easy, quick and you can't beat the flavor. First, season the fish with sea salt and pepper, and then grill skin-side down until just cooked through. (No flipping needed.)
* Copper River King is usually available for for only 3-4 weeks every year - usually starting in mid- to late May. Our main shipment this year (2013) is currently scheduled for the week of May 13th - opener schedule permitting. So order now - don't miss it!
