A Gourmet Smoked Salmon Omelette
Premium Copper River Smoked Sockeye Salmon
Cream Cheese, Red Onion, Dill, Chives
A gourmet rolled omelette with smoked salmon is a delightful and elegant dish that combines the fluffy and creamy texture of a classic French omelette with the rich, savory notes of smoked salmon.
Premium smoked Copper River salmon takes center stage in this dish. Farm-fresh eggs are whisked to perfection, creating a smooth and velvety omelette base. A generous amount of butter is used to cook the omelette, giving it a rich and indulgent flavor. Cream cheese brings a creamy texture, along with a subtle tang. Chopped fresh dill and chives are added for a burst of herbaceous freshness and aroma.
The Artisan Smoked Salmon:
Copper River Fish Market is a seafood boutique in remote Alaska that is fisher(wo)man founded, owned, and operated. Sarah is a generational fisHERman with over two decades of experience in sustainable, small-boat fishing. Every catch is meticulously selected, and each shipment comes with an origin guarantee. She says her salmon is curated with the hand of a Seafood Sommelier.™
All their seafood comes directly from her family’s catch. The Copper River salmon is cut by hand, brined with only brown sugar and salt and smoked over real alder-wood. The small-batch production and attention to every detail simply is not possible on a larger scale. Her salmon is a true artisan crafted food product.

The celebration continues! Taste With The Eyes is 4-years-old and we’re splurging with Copper River Salmon. The most expensive fresh salmon is only available for about four weeks of the year, from mid-May through mid-June, when the King salmon swim up the Copper River in Alaska to spawn. At our local Bristol Farms Market, Copper River King Salmon was selling for $50/lb.! At $50/lb. the 8 oz. filet in the photo above would have cost $25. Market factors such as commercial harvest, supply and demand, plus the cost of oil have pushed the price from $40 last season to this all time high of $50.
Even for the crème de la crème of salmon, this price is out of range for most people (myself included). In fact, after speaking with the fishmonger at the market, I learned that they were unable to sell their entire shipment of Copper River King at that price, and some had tragically gone to waste. The good news was that Copper River Sockeye sales went way up, as folks were introduced to this smaller, more plentiful species of salmon. Some say that sockeye has the truest pure salmon flavor and is preferred by aficionados.
