Wild Sockeye Salmon Piccata

Photo: psfreeman

Recipe from Harris Teeter's Fresh Catch Newsletter Salmon find their home waters by their sense of smell which is even more keen than a dog's or a bear's. They also rely on ocean currents, tides and the gravitational pull of the moon to navigate their way through the ocean back to the stream or river where they were born.
