Unlike the “Atlantic salmon” you see in most inland stores, 99.8% of which is farmed, true “Alaskan salmon” is caught wild, which means the fish have lived free and fed on clean substances. It tastes better, and is a whole lot better for you. Here’s just one of the ways we North Americans love to eat this tasty, fleshy, and fragrant-on-the-grill wild fish, a huge American favorite main entree: Grilled Wild Alaskan Salmon.
