Taku River Salmon: Or "Salmon-Salmon" in Tlingit Tongue?

Last night's dinner, found at Costco, grilled slowly on the green egg.....




One account of the "Taku" name says it means salmon, but Wikipedia says it translates into "Geese Flood Upriver Tribe".


In any case, it tasted very good. Mild, light a super pale peach color.


What's your favorite way to cook and eat salmon?
