That's the question I posed on Facebook, with the news that Copper River salmon is in...and we got some tasty suggestions that apply to any kind! Scroll down for a sample from some of my Facebook friends:
Doug Martin-- not hard but my chef friend gave me an incredibly easy way to broil salmon. pour about 1/2" vermouth into the bottom of the broiler pan. Then lay your steaks on the broiler pan top, pepper to taste and put a big pat of butter (regular or flavored) on top of each steak. Broil on high for 7-9 minutes or until you see a crust forming on top of the salmon. That's all you do and it comes out beautifully colored, moist and is so delicious!
Jackie Colwell-- Marinade in equal parts soy, olive oi, honey (or brown suigar) and balsamic vinegar...with a couple minced garlic cloves. Grill on high 7 minutes per sidea.
Sue Stebner: Simple is best - Thin slices of mild onion and lemon...tent with foil. Use cedar planks meant for fish...not cedar shakes from Home Depot.
Scratch Lake Oswego-- Rubbed in garlic oil , toasted cumin and wrapped in a banana leaf, steamed for 9 mins yum
Brian Jennings-- Drizzle it with honey at beginning and end as Native Americans dID.
Jill Jackson--we ditched the plank years ago. my husband poaches it in chardonnay. no fish smell in the house and the fat is minimal. lemon juice and lemon pepper seasoning. simply and so good. he catches, cleans and cooks. i eat. perfect.
PapaHoot DaClown-- Make a "boat hull" out of heavy duty foil, insert salmon, sprinkle with salt & pepper, top with sliced lemon add white wine (Chardonnay or Pinot Gris work great) about 1/2" deep. Seal the foil and place on the grill or in the oven. Always moist and incredible.
Francine Chough Olive-- oil salt and pepper and crushed garlic. Yum. Do not over cook
Lora Fisher-- Light glaze with maple syrup!
Mt Adams Lodge-- fresh dill, lemon & mayo!

This is just so incredibly sad..and yet the joy of this man's life shines through. Richard Swanson, a 42 year old Seattle man who was between jobs, saw this as a chance to do something off-the-charts and help a very cool charity. So he set out to dribble a soccer ball from Seattle all the way to Brazil, host of the 2014 World Cup. He blogged about his adventure on Facebook and on a website which included a GPS track of his journey. That journey ended abruptly when he was hit and killed by a pickup truck in Lincoln City on the Oregon Coast.
The morning of the accident, he appeared in this video. His message was, and is, it's life. Live it.
