A wahoo is a species of mackeral. They get very large and fight like crazy.

I love it when you order salmon and you get a filet of something other than salmon. Makes my evening explaining to them salmon meat is an orangish/pinkish color and not white.


Actually - there are white-fleshed wild king salmon! I did not know this until I caught some this year in Alaska and BC, Canada. You can't tell the difference between a white-fleshed and a red-fleshed king salmon until you actually cut them open and see the meat. I have quite a bit of it in my freezer. I also had it this year at a sushi restaurant in Anchorage, AK. It's gooooood. Supposedly only about 1 in 20 wild king salmon have white flesh. It's considered a delicacy and fetches a higher price than wild king salmon with red meat. If you were at a very high-end seafood restaurant then you may have been served wild, white king salmon.

Here's an interesting article on them:

White King Salmon


That makes me feel like a butt. I argued with a waitress that salmon isn't white until they gave me my money back. Whoops. Lol.

You are correct. You will never find that color salmon meat in Carrabbas for $18. My mom worked at a fish factory in AK and WA and they would separate the meat. The distributors know they can get huge $$$ and separate the meat. That type of meat sells for well over $35 a 6 oz filet and is only found in high end restaurants.

I lived in Anchorage and caught 2 Kings with the white meat. They taste so good.

Oh, Carrabbas. That explains it. That must have been one of those salmon with meat that looks and tastes like tilapia. \:D
