The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

After having a bite of the Chipotle Chicken Tacos my coworker brought for lunch a couple of weeks ago, this was my dinner two days later.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Copper River Salmon Lands in Seattle


That's right, it literally lands in Seattle, jetted in from Cordova on an Alaska Airlines plane. Friday morning, I was up bright and early to participate in this Seattle Springtime right of passage. With the kick off of the Copper River Salmon Season, media and celebrity chefs head out to SeaTac Airport to give the first fish that arrive to Seattle the red carpet treatment. Once it arrives, we all celebrate with a celebrity chef cook off, and eating salmon for breakfast. 

Before we got to the cooking, I was in awe watching this man filet the salmon. It was impressive.


Sure, I'll have a fresh piece...it tasted like butter in my mouth.


Look at how beautiful that salmon is!


After drooling over the raw fish, the chefs got to cooking. I of course had fun just watching the chefs do their thang, although tasting was a nice perk as well. I wasn't the only one who was happy to be having Salmon fro breakfast.


Judges, Mike Fourtner (from Deadliest Catch) and Jay Buhner (Mariners Hall of Famer) seemed to be having a really good time as well.

And the winner...


John Howie with his Applewood Grilled King Salmon with Pesto Mashed Potatoes, Buerre Rouge and Butter Poached Morels. Yes, that was as good as it sounds. I will be re-creating this dish at my house soon!

I'm excited to be a part of the Copper River Salmon Fresh Catch Crew, I have them to thank for being able to attend this event! As you know, I love my salmon, and I look forward to cooking up some Copper River Salmon Recipes for you all this summer!

I hope this article doesn't create exceptional demand for this fish. A natural resource like this doesn't need unnecessary pressure!
