I'm waaaay late for my annual Copper River salmon run at Costco. Finally got some today at Van Nuys—$10.99 a lb.
But this year, for the first time, they are selling whole CR salmon (in the seafood cases they put out on weekends, and no they will not fillet it for you) for $7.99 lb. Each weighs 3 to 4 lbs. A pretty good deal if you can deal with boning/scaling.
Can't recall if people have had luck freezing these—anyone?
