PSA: the Copper River Salmon Has Dropped

don’t sleep

This makes me think of the raining of the fish on Fargo.

The first month of Copper River season is textbook example of a Veblen good that one learns about in Econ 1 in college.

Just wait a month. And prices will plummet.

Maru-san just served me a piece of this gorgeousness last week. (Yes, I’m well aware Copper River salmon is not in the Edomae sushi repertoire - AFAIC Maru-san can do whatever the hell he wants in his house; I suppose we are celebrating deviate-from-authenticity month here in FTC-land.) Anyways, this piece of nigiri was sublime.

who knows the proper storage process if i’m to hot smoke 3, 4 fillets? vacuum seal and what, fridge? i dont want to freeze

Hot smoking will not preserve the fish. You need to treat it just a you would any cooked salmon.

so you’re saying i should make lox huh? (cold smoke)

I’m not against hot smoking the salmon, then vacuum sealing it, then freezing it. But you’d have to freeze it.

To be honest, I don’t know how long homemade, cold smoked lox would keep vacuum sealed in the refrigerator.

End products are really different but either way I would freeze. I don’t think you end up with too much of a difference in texture since so much of the moisture will be drawn out in the cutting and smoking process.
