Costco on Barrett Parkway now charging $10.99/lb, but it's still a bargain and very, very good. I guess the $2 price hike might have to do with the season winding down?
I saw that Monday at Perimeter.  I dug through all of the packages and couldn't find one less than 1.5 lbs.  I don't want to (re-)freeze it and that much fish is just way too much for 2 people.  And then last night I regretted not springing for the $11/lb when K-Roger didn't have any wild salmon.

Ha! There are only two of us,also, but we get quite greedy during sockeye season. That's the package size we bought. Leftover fish (and there wasn't much!) will be salmon BLTs tonight.

There's always room for leftovers... no salmon on a salad for lunch?

Grabbed a filet at Costco. Didn't even think about getting more to freeze until I read this thread :( What's the best way to freeze it? My vacuum sealer is somewhere in storage so if that's the best option, I'll just wait 'till next year. Looking forward to eating this! $10.99/lb BTW. Bought the smallest at just under 1.5

I bought some Copper River king salmon a few weeks ago from Kathleen's Catch in Johns Creek. Price was a tad cheaper than Whole Food's non-sale price.

Forgive the dumb question, but I've never had it before... does it just taste like regular salmon, only "better"?  Sort of like sirloin is to rib eye as regular salmon is to copper river salmon?  We'll make Ca Kho out of salmon from time to time.  My wife actually likes it better with salmon than any other fish.  Would it be a waste to splurge on copper river salmon only to braise it in such a strong sauce?

I think it would work better since the flavor is stronger it would come through more.
to me it tastes more salmony, but not fishier...could i tell regular wild sockeye vs. copper river in a blind taste? I don't know...that's why i'd like to turn both into lox and compare side by side.

Harry's has sockeye on sale tomorrow (friday dec7) for 7.99/lb.  Gonna pick some up to make some ca kho this weekend. Hoping its a lot better than the crappy frozen tasteless filets I picked up last week.   Maybe even try my hand at smoking some.
