I don't really care for Alaska too much and moving home to Oregon. Alaska is okay if you like long winters 8 months or more, and have a great job, and enjoy the high cost of living. I can get a three bedroom house in Oregon for what I pay a dumpy one bedroom in Alaska. Plus, Alaska is okay if you are a man. If you are a woman and sick and on disability some people treat you like a dog.

Good luck! Alaska is really a man's state and for little boys with lots of toys. LOL>
About salmon: the oil is one of the reasons why salmon are so good. Bones? I fillet a salmon, then then cut-out a row of bones on the fillet (above the stomach cavity). What is left is a fillet without bones, minus a narrow strip of flesh on the top half of the fillet.

About Alaska: some hate it, and some love it. My wife and I are in the later, even after 30 years. I can't stand most places in the lower-48, including Oregon. Too many people. Even Anchorage has too many people

I've heard of people actually doing that...don't think I'd like the aftertaste!
I'll be trying this soon since I've got a nice sockeye fillet just beggin' to be 'planked'.

Instead of a treated plank,, why don't they just grill it in saran wrap. Get all that flavor into the meal.

I grew up on salmon patties. I despise them to this day.

Rance, if they were made with your salmon salsa recipe, would be to kill for...

Do you mean foil? Saran wrap is thin plastic and would melt into the fish I would think.

Which is along the lines of cooking it on a treated lumber plank. Creosote or other hydrocarbons nicely embedded into the flesh would surely cause cancer in California, and taste pretty darn gross.
May as well wrap it in plastic wrap and grill it to perfection.

Gotcha...the intended sarcasm went right over my head. I guess I was assuming that people are smart enough not to use the 'treated' planks.

Well received my orders, start working in Anchorage 15JUL09. Hoping to leave Washington late June, allowing a week to drive up there then fish and site-see for a week! AWESOME. I will fish for any salmon, beats anything we have in Washington State.

Hard to better fresh steelhead, that might be the best!!
