What is the best tasting salmon?

 

Some people swear that Copper River sockeye is the best. Others would argue for wild kings or Chinook, maybe even one of the rare “white” kings of Alaska. Still others might say that wild ocean caught Coho is the best ... or kokanee from Kootenay Lake in British Columbia. A few might even argue for “organic” farmed salmon from Ireland or Kuterra from north Vancouver Island. There is no general agreement, nor even criteria for deciding what the best tasting salmon is.
