Oh, how I love Steelhead Salmon. However, when I eat it, for just a split second, I feel really guilty. These crazy fish swim upstream for miles and miles to spawn only to get snagged up. All that work for nothing. At least they are delicious, and I will not let their efforts prevent me from devouring them every chance I get. Could you imagine if humans had the instinct to return to their place of birth to spawn? Watch out, Price, Utah! Here I come! Ha! I'll pass. But I won't ever pass if this salmon is present at the table. It was tender, flavorful, and delicious in every way. The green onions were a nice touch, too. That was my own doing, but I loved it.
