Love wild salmon, the farm raised is not good for you, tried the recipe, good but next time I think I will use the juice of a whole lemon instead of 1/2 a lemon.

There is a wonderful young man at our farmers market who bring fresh caught salmon when
they are available, that's the Only salmon I will eat.
Olivia, you describe exactly what the bears do when they fish for salmon. Are they bad too??

No need to add mercury - there's already a pinch there!

I'm a little disapointed that you incourage eating salmon, which are intelligent, sensative animals. I once saw someone fishing salmon at the top of a river that they jump up to mate at the top, and tears filed my eyes at the though of all they'd done to get there, just to get killed!
