SALMON SUPPERS

Summer at Finn Slough means SALMON!  Finn Slough residents and fishermen were delighted by the first fishing opening early August that sparked a series of spontaneous and spectacular salmon suppers at the Slough.

Dear Friends of Finn Sough: Please support our fishing industry by buying ONLY wild salmon (preferably directly from fishermen). Please boycott farmed salmon. When domestic salmon escape their pens, they carry genetic and viral diseases that threaten the health of our wild salmon stock.

MARGARETíS TOASTER OVEN SALMON

Salmon is wonderful baked, poached, barbequed or split/woven with a branch and cooked over open fire. But what if you have a 9 lb. sockeye and a toaster oven? You can still make terrific salmon.

Clean the salmon and cut off the head and tail and freeze for future use (they are delicious for bouillabaisse). Stuff the fish with finely sliced leek, Italian parsley, juice of a lemon/lime, salt and pepper. Loosely cover with foil and bake at 375-400 degrees. You should hear it sizzle. Remove foil for last 5 minutes to crisp it up. Good hot and cold.
