Today was opening day for Salmon fishing in the Columbia River, so Hubby and a neighbor made plans to go out and do some fishing. They left home at 3:00 am. Around 11:00, Hubby called me on the phone to let me know they were on their way home. When he told me he’d caught an 19 pound King Salmon that measured 36 inches long, I didn’t quite believe him. Turns out, it was the truth.
Hubby cleaned the fish and cut it into steaks. We froze enough for four more dinners, and grilled some up tonight.
It was delicious! The salmon on the left was marinated with an orange-honey glaze, the other was marinated with lemon pepper. I baked some french bread to go with it, and sauteed some of the veggies from our CSA box. Talk about eating fresh, that salmon went from swimming in the river this morning to our dinner table tonight.
