I live in Seattle. Salmon is pretty much our official city food product. Living in a fishing-heavy port city is fabulous for seafood, and I admit I’m pretty spoiled for it. I bought a whole fresh Sockeye salmon–the first of the season–last week at my local Farmer’s Market. Not frozen, and meaty and rich. While I know a lot of the country doesn’t have that option, I’m still going to campaign for you to buy a whole fish. Salmon especially, but trout, mackerel, bass and sardines are wonderful smaller fish that you’ll get so much more use out of if you buy the whole shebang.
