Fresh Salmon

My husband, Paul, and I have just returned from a trip where we joined old college friends to visit Seattle, Mt. Rainier and Victoria, B.C.  Some members of the group took three days to journey deeper into Vancouver where they fished for salmon and halibut while other friends enjoyed Victoria.  While the fishing was not as good as expected,  Victoria was delightful.  The salmon used in Cedar Planked Salmon was fresh and delicious!
