Wild-salmon price goes down, then up

Fresh wild sockeye salmon is veined with heart-healthy fat.

Costco Wholesale has lowered, then raised the price of fresh wild sockeye salmon from the famed Copper River in Alaska.

This past Friday, we bought our fourth weekly fillet from the warehouse store in Hackensack, and paid $10.99 a pound. 

We paid $13.99 a pound a day after this wonderful fish first appeared on May 24, then $8.99 a pound and $9.99 a pound in the following two weeks.

I add a sprinkle of salt, lime juice, Aleppo pepper, and chopped mint and oregano in that order to flavor the fish, which cooks in 10 minutes or less.

The portions are ready to roast in a preheated 400-degree oven.

The fish comes out rare after 7 minutes, above, and medium after 10 minutes.

Right out of the oven, this fresh salmon melts in your mouth. The veins of fat liquify, and the salmon is juicy and fragrant with garden herbs.

We bought this package on Friday and prepared the fish on Sunday.
