copper river salmon
The summer cookout season is heralded each spring by the arrival of the first Copper River salmon from Alaska.
Three top Seattle chefs compete to create the best salmon recipe in Alaska Air Cargo’s “Copper Chef Cook-off.” This year, executive chefs Jason Wilson of CRUSH and Wayne A. Johnson of Ray’s Boathouse competed against the 2010 and 2011 Copper Chef winner Pat Donahue, the executive chef of Anthony’s Restaurants. And, for a third year in a row, Pat Donahue won the cook-off and was named, ‘The Copper Chef’ for 2012. Here are their recipes.
The first shipment of Alaska’s Copper River salmon arrived Friday morning at Sea-Tac Airport aboard an Alaska Airlines cargo flight from Cordova.
The season we’ve been waiting for is here – Copper River Salmon time! The first Alaska Airlines plane, their “Salmon Thirty Salmon” delivered a fresh load of the antioxidant-laden fish to Seattle today.
