I think you're right, MG. The fish are probably smaller and skimpier. I guess one would have to buy a whole salmon and cut it into steaks ones self. And, you're right the filets can't be cooked properly like the steaks can. And mushy usually means farm-raised.

Good bumper sticker.

So, does Pancho still have a restaurant? He advertises the store all the time but nada about the restaurant. He used to post lots of pics of customers and food.

Just eat it smoked, the meat is always at least 1.5, or more, cm. thick.

Yes, Pancho still has his restaurant but his main business is the store.

Segue...
On the subject of wild, cold water fish... Salmon is also an excellent source of Vitamin D3.

It tastes great, is easy to prepare AND it's good for you. Bonus!

Before moving to Mexico in 2004, I lived in Santa Cruz, CA.  During salmon season, I could buy whole salmon right off the docks.  Those fish had been swimming and eating as nature meant them to, and the filets and steaks were firm, flaky and delicious.  The closest thing I've found here is the filets at Costalegre.  They are not quite the same, but plenty good enough.
There is nothing I buy at the meat dept. at Walmart...for good reasons.
Shocked Very Happy

I am in total agreement gringal and would prefer to buy at Costa Alegre. At the moment, Walmart is the most convenient for me. Here's to better choices in the future!

I find that the large frozen half salmon filets at WalMart are pretty much the same as the frozen at both Pacifico and Costalegre. However, the small cut filets at WalMart are godawful. I buy the large one, grille half and smoke the other half.

It's plain to see that lots of people like smoked fish. Costalegre was the first time I ever had hot smoked salmon in a big chunk, and it blew me away. Until then I had only ever tried that skinny, slimey stuff that people put on bagels. I much prefer the chunks.

The bagel kind is called Lox. Pickled, lightly cold smoked then sliced really thin. I don't make that.

Sure, I coulda said that, but "that skinny, slimey stuff that people put on bagels" was way more fun and descriptive for me. There's nothing wrong with it, and I'd be hard-pressed to put hot smoked salmon on a bagel, reserving it instead for salads and fancy crackers.

Gotta agree with you, not much of a fan of "skinny, slimey" lox but a nice piece of moist and meaty smoked salmon is up there in my 10 favorite foods.

Mike, hot smoked is the only way we eat it in Ireland, and we eat it everyday when we are there. Even the kids and grandkids prefer and love it that way.
Occasionally we get it shipped over from Ireland but it´s too expensive for us that way except for very special occasions.

Lox is only brined and is not smoked in any way. If the brine slime offends you then rinse it and pat it dry.
It's kinda like comparing a battered fish dinner to a grilled fish dinner. Each is different and has its followers.
I like sashimi and ceviche as well. The first is completely fresh, raw fish and the second is "cooked" in lime juice.
A fish on a hook just pulled from a lake is slimy too.

Sashimi or sushi fish must be frozen or chilled near frozen for a set amount of time before it can be served to the public. Raw fish has an increasing problem with parasite infestation. Climate change is partly to blame.

One of our go-to quesadillas are:
Hot smoked salmon;
Goat cheese;
My Holy Trinity (caramelized onions, red peppers and poblanos);
a healthy squirt of Chipotle Molido (optional).
Grill them for 2 minutes on each side until the goat cheese is a bit oozy and the tortilla is toasty.

Do you make candied salmon? They used to call it Indian Candy in B.C. but that is probably no longer politically correct. We buy our fish from a truck, which delivers on a route of customers. He is from the Pacific Coast, and he drives to his customers every two weeks. He must buy directly from the fishers there, or the wholesale trade fish market. His Salmon, Snapper and Prawns are always excellent and well priced. I don' t have his contact information but will ask for it when comes to our house on Monday.
He might be able to sell your product for you.

My stepson, who lived in Whistler at the time, used to sell his home grown hydroponic weed to the Indians for whole fresh salmon which he would then turn around and sell to the restaurants in Whistler.
I thought he was a pretty enterprising dude at the time... even though pot was illegal then.
