I recently made a trip to the world famous Pike Place Market which, believe it or not, is only about a mile from my house. My goal was to shoot some scenes for my new website for the "About Me" page.
While I was there I realized I needed a salmon to smoke for my annual St Patrick's Day party, which was only 2 days away. Imagine my surprise when the guys at Pike Place Fish Market asked me if I wanted to "catch" a salmon. I thought they were kidding. I said "You mean, like, a stuffed salmon...a pretend salmon"?
A few of the guys chimed in with variations of the word "no" and the next thing I knew I was standing behind the counter at the fish market, being egged on by the crowd. I was realllly nervous, but what a fun experience.
The sockeye salmon I smoked for the party turned out great too, but I think I'll save that blog post for the new website!
