Whole Foods Charles River Plaza One Day Sale on Coho Salmon Filet Friday, August 8th

IMG_8752

On August 8th Whole Foods Market – Charles River Plaza will be having a HUGE sale with extremely deep discounts that you won’t want to miss. Every year, customers and team members alike look forward to wild salmon season.

There are several species of Pacific wild-caught salmon including King Salmon which is sometimes called Chinook, Coho Salmon, also called Silver Salmon, Pink (or Humpback) Salmon (used mostly for canning), Sockeye Salmon, also known as Red Salmon, and Copper River Salmon, which could be Coho, Sockeye or King.

WFM very own port buyers, Keith Harris and Anthony Jordan, live in Alaska during the summer months and work directly with the fishermen and salmon on the docks to select the highest quality fish.

In honor of the One Day Sale I’ve created a delicious recipe featuring Coho Salmon that I think you’ll enjoy. It’s a refreshing dish and super easy to make!

I've been on a gluten free diet since January 2009. It's been an adventure, and a challenge at times. I love to go to new restaurants and try new foods, and being gluten free can make eating out difficult at times. But I will not let my dietary restrictions get in my way of finding new restaurants and products. These are my stories of being a young women in a big city, eating out and trying new foods, all while NOT eating gluten. Like I said, it's an adventure and you are welcome to come along... Please note that as I try to eat gluten free 100% of the time, my intolerance is not as severe as others so please use caution when dining at restaurants that are not certified gluten free.

  1. I lived in the Pacific Northwest for 10 years and salmon was available everywhere, usually at very reasonable prices.
