Copper River Salmon Cakes with Spicy Avocado Sauce

Salmon Cakes with Spicy Avocado Sauce

On the last shipment from Copper River Salmon, I got a package filled with smoked and canned salmon goodies. Such a nice way to end my time on the Fresh Catch Crew! The canned salmon was the last to be used and here’s what I did: Salmon Cakes.

Salmon Cakes with Spicy Avocado Sauce

So easy to make, something like this is perfect for a weeknight dinner! And if you do have an avocado, I recommend making the sauce too. Very zippy and creamy. Unfortunately, my . . . → Read More: Copper River Salmon Cakes with Spicy Avocado Sauce

Cedar Plank Coho Salmon

Cedar Plank Coho Salmon

This recipe is really delicious and unique (is cedar planked salmon still unique? Let’s go with a yes). It was a bit of an experiment with the last, small piece of my awesome Copper River Coho Salmon. We were actually grilling a whole different meal (Pork Chops) and decided at the last minute* to throw a small piece of the salmon on the grill while the chops were resting. I just happened to have cedar planks and everything else so it worked out perfect.

Pan-Roasted Coho Salmon with Basil Cream

Coho Salmon with Basil Cream

Wow, I can’t believe I am almost through all of my Copper River Salmon posts. I only have one left for next week. I’ll give you a hint. It involves fire and cedar.

Coho Salmon and Corn Chowder with Herbed Oyster Crackers

Coho Salmon and Corn Chowder

Seeing that Summer is now officially over, here is one of my last Copper River Salmon posts. The latest shipment was fall Coho Salmon and I really made it count and used it for 3 (THREE) recipes!

This first one was something a bit different for me. It seems like most of my salmon experiments have been basically searing the fish in olive oil, with just a sprinkle of salt and pepper (because it’s so good just like that), but when my Coho arrived, it had a little informational card . . . → Read More: Coho Salmon and Corn Chowder with Herbed Oyster Crackers

Coast Weekend in Photos: Part I

Coast Weekend

We went to the coast a couple of weekends ago and I took some great pictures! So I thought I would post a bunch here. But then there were so many images that I wanted to use that I thought it would be better to break it up into two posts. How exciting.

Here’s the first group which mainly covers the first day of our adventures — Gearhart, Pacific Way Cafe and the beach. It was also a really great weekend to head to the coast, as the temperature in Portland hit 100 degrees . . . → Read More: Coast Weekend in Photos: Part I
