Copper River Salmon
 
Aye went frog giggin today and ended up with a dern salmon that swam from Alaska's Copper River into the fish department of my nearby Costco. Talk about a wayward traveler.

After checkin with my faithful Brethren, Aye seasoned a tail piece of the Salmon with a wee bit of Plowboys Yardbird Seasoning. Then flung that baby on the magical Kamado. The temp was 200+/- and smoked it with Alder Wood.

45 minutes later the IT was 137 and aye pulled it and wrapped it in aluminium and got on about my business of finishing the sides. The filet was awesome and the fat and oil had bloomed like a flower.

Roasted some corn for a Yuca, Green Pepper, Garlic, and Red Pepper Flake Hash to accompany me lonely fish on the plate befer the slide down me esophagus to join the grog in my belly. Shine Veggy Shine!

Aye topped the Salmon with Mostarda Mantovana di Pere, Aka Pear Mustard. This stuff is the BOMB! Sweet and Spicy Mustard Sauce. And finished it off on the grill to caramelize.

Would it improve the ratings if I had mentioned it was cooked with an 800lb Gorilla?

Hell yes. A lot is made of Copper River salmon, and the hype is well earned. Last year I bought identical sized salmon fillets, one copper river, one regular troll caught. The Copper River was better, richer and less "fishy" than the regular troll caught.

It was explained to me that Copper River salmon eat shrimp which gives them their great color and taste. :becky:
