Grilled Wild Sockeye Salmon Northwest Style

Photo: psfreeman

Recipe from Harris Teeter's Fresh Catch Newsletter The name sockeye comes from an attempt to translate the word suk-kegh from British Columbia's native Coast Salish language. Suk-kegh means red fish. The sockeye, also called red or blueback salmon, is among the smallest of the seven Pacific salmon species, but their succulent, bright-orange meat is prized above all others. They range in size from 24 to 33 inches in length and weigh between 5 and 15 lbs.
