Featured Fish: Wild Alaskan Salmon

Fresh wild salmon — with a firm flesh and rich flavor tinged by the cold ocean — is best had from late spring through early fall. And it certainly is worth seeking out.  Thanks to its versatility with other flavors, its ease and speed of cooking, as well as a wave of good news about its healthful fats, salmon has become one of America’s go-to seafood choices.   Its flavor is mild and fillets are affordable. But advocates of wild salmon praise its flavor and its provenance as an American fish.  Salmon was a staple of early Native Americans.    Alaskan salmon boasts five varietals: king, sockeye, coho, keta and pink. Each has a distinctive flavor profile and preferred preparations.
