What Restaurants Have Copper River Salmon in OC/LA?

MunchieLady May 27, 2007 03:27 PM

It's Copper River salmon season and I'm wondering if any seafood restaurants in the OC/LA area are serving the succulent, amazingly flavorful variety of salmon. It has a very short season, so one must get it while it's available.

    Trader Joe's has (or at least had, last weekend) Nova-style smoked Copper River salmon, in 12-oz packs. Very nice.

      I had it yesterday for lunch at The Water Grill downtown. It was served "pastrami spice" style. It was good, but I wasn't blown away, especially at $40 for the entree.

            Kiriko has always been known for their Copper Mountain River Salmon Sashimi w/Mango.

                The Fish Market at the Irvine Spectrum might have it.

                    Palomino also has it. Unfortunately, I deleted the email, so I don't have the details. But I'm sure you can call to get more info.

                        I was at Sta. Monica Seafood yesterday (6/6/07) and they indeed had it -- at $30 or so a pound!

                        In the past, Banderas has always had it during the season.

                          Might want to try McCormick and Schmidts. They change their menu daily.

                              Ms. Oz is crazy about their "summer salad," which features a very nice chunk of grilled Copper River salmon. It's about $18.

                              Napa Grill in Westwood usually has it this time of year.
