One-Day Sale At Whole Foods Tomorrow

Our local Whole Foods stores will offer us an intriguing sale for tomorrow only, the 27th, with (presumably fresh) coho salmon at an excellent price for their fine fish.  I have a vague impression that I prefer sockeye over coho (any salmon aficionados out there like to weigh in?), but the sockeye I've been buying elsewhere recently, while tasty, has also seemed exceptionally full of bones.  I'm looking forward to scooping up some of this coho tomorrow.  Here's what Whole Foods says:

One-Day Wild Salmon Sale!

This Friday only, our Alaska troll-caught Coho salmon will be on sale for just $8.99 a pound.

  1. Hi Eileen,
    Thanks for the heads-up...this is so good to know. Especially with the level of freshness that Whole Foods consistently provides (never "meh"!).

    My understanding is that Sockeye is more fatty (in this case, a good thing!) and more flavorful than Coho (which is supposed to have a milder taste). I usually prefer Sockeye, too, but I'd guess any fish that Whole Foods gets their hands on is bound to be tasty.

    I may see you there!

  2. Ms. A., thanks for the well-informed response confirming my vague, visceral impression. Onward to Whole Foods tomorrow!
