It's Copper River season again! Stop by both locations for our Fresh Wild Copper River Sockeye Salmon.
Wild-caught in Alaska's famed Copper River, this Sockeye boasts premium flavor and dense, moist meat with a rich and nutty flavor. It lends itself perfectly to nearly any method of cooking, but is especially good for the grill. Why is this salmon so special? Every year, they swim up the rapids of the 300-mile Copper River. As a consequence, they're stronger than most varieties and filled with fatty and good-for-you Omega-3 oils.
