We've been eating "wild-caught sockeye salmon" from Alaska for several months; it appears reliably in our grocery store for $10 a pound, and many times you can catch it on sale. But recently other varieties besides sockeye, such as Copper River or king, have been showing up at $20. We decided that we'd splurge one night and see if the fancy stuff was worth twice the price.
So here's a plate of Copper River salmon. Beautiful, delicious -- but indistinguishable from plain old sockeye. We won't be splurging again.
