Salmon again

Eastside Road, May 12, 2012—
SATURDAY: FARM MARKET in Healdsburg; and as I've mentioned before, Dave the fisherman is one of the "farmers," bringing catch of his own from off the Sonoma coast when he can, fish he's scored from reliable purveyors when he can't. Today, thankfully, he could, and we had delicious local wild salmon.

It is of course one of our favorite fish, but we're careful what salmon we eat. We're lucky to live on the Pacific coast: nothing wrong with wild salmon from Alaskan waters, or the Oregon coast. But of course we like to eat locally when we can, and there's no better salmon, I think, than our own. Lindsey just broils it, when I'm too lazy to build a fire outside; today we had it with chard from the garden, and another serving of the barley pilaf from a few days ago.
