Today I took a trip to O'Hare airport cargo section to pick up our order of 25# sockeye and 25# coho salmon from Lofoten Fish Company. The minimum order is 50# so if your interested in ordering the salmon it is a good idea to go in with a few friends/families if you can. We typically buy 50# then freeze it and have great salmon when ever we want. This time though we choose to buy the salmon whole (head off and gutted) and break down ourselves. Let me tell you friends I am a bit rusty and it has been over 15 years since I have broken down so much salmon. Why does the first filet come out so nice and the second one looks a bit like it was butchered. No worries, I got better as I kept going. Plenty of scraps to make some pate or seafood sausage. Here are a few photos to enjoy.
