I am blessed… so blessed!!!
We live on the pacific coast and my husband Phil and his friends go fishing a few times a year. This means tons of fabulous salmon for us — all.year.long.
Last weekend, Phil came back from a four day fishing trip with some beautiful salmon. They caught 30 Coho Salmon, 5 Chinook Salmon and 5 halibut, but they sent most of the fish to be canned, smoked and frozen. Phil just brought home three big Coho for us to eat and freeze ourselves.
Really, Phil did ALL the work for this tackle. But hey — I did take pictures and try to keep Olivia from grabbing both the fish and the knives. Oh and I did eat the fish after he barbecued it. So, really, I did my part! 😉
Note: The following pictures do show salmon, well, not so alive anymore… So, if you are offended by the sight of fish being prepared for eating, please skip over the photos. I come from a long line of fishermen and had my fingers in fish guts more often than playdough! So to me, it is par for the course.
