Yes, it's excellent. I like cod better than salmon. Or halibut...for that matter. Has better taste, IMO. And what's more, it costs less....

Sorry, but nothing in the world could be as good as sockeye salmon. Nothing. Not even chocolate.

This summer, maybe if Warptman gets back to Bethel in time... go visit him for a day. Grab him by the whatever, and force him to haul you down the river to Napakiak. Then make him catch a King Salmon and cook it for you.

Do not ignore specifics in the instructions. Napakiak... not ten miles up river or ten miles down river. Napakiak.

That's where the best Kings in the world come from, and while a sockeye is worth eating when you're in a pinch, a King from Napakiak will spoil you rotten.

I am not a huge fan of salmon, though it is a blast to catch. Now halibut on the other hand.....Yum!

Well...I do love smoked salmon.

Better than CHOCOLATE?!?!! OK: that's it. Get on a plane, fly to Sand Point, and ask the cab driver to take you to Krazy Kenny's house. You obviously need to be chastised.

In other news, Black Cod is very good, indeed. A light fish flavor, tender, very oily, best eaten smoked ... what isn't?

Mine preference is to marinate in Teriyaki sauce and put it in the Little Chief smoker for 12-24 hours, depending on ambient temperature and whether or not I forget it.

Now, of all fishes, mine favorite are the rock fishes - especially Yelloweye. Right after that, Sockeye, Halibut, smoked BC, preference being what's thawed out and ready to cook.

As for Pacific Cod, I once saw them fighting each other in Lazy Bay, Alitak, for human ... fecal objects. Since I feel you are what you eat, and I have seen what P-Cod like to eat, they are all yours. Emotional? Irrational? So?

Anyway, Black Cod is truly a delicious fish; as to what's best, of course that is personal preference.

As for saying ANYTHING is better than chocolate: I have a small collection of replicas of Medieval weapons, mine favorite of which is a Polish Mace. Do drop by.

Don't forget: ask Freddie the cabby to take you to Krazy Kenny's. (heh heh heh)

Better than chocolate ... rrrrrr.

..."a King from Napakiak will spoil you rotten"...

Did you know that the fishermen here in Sand Point are lucky - LUCKY!- to get twenty-five cents a pound for setnet-caught kings? While not troll caught fish, they are almost always quite attractive and of course delicious. Even the White Kings.

Twenty-five cents. If they're lucky.

Oh hell I agree with Floyd about King Salmon.

Barkely, half smoked black cod is the best, with new potatos.

The price of salmon is gonna go through the roof this year, btw.
