 h1. Dear readers,

 When Debra Gwartney sent us her moving essay about how little salmon she ate as a girl growing up in the deliciously named Salmon, Idaho, I recalled my own first experience with that fish: canned by my grandmother and served well hidden in a creamy noodle casserole or straight up in "salmon patties" with bits of pesky cartilage. As a child, I wasn't a salmon fan either.

 But that all changed when I tasted grilled salmon. I wish I could recall my first encounter with that amazing food, which, like Debra, I now love. Did I note the flavor and color of the fish -- taking the time to really taste it -- or did I take it for granted? This year chinook season will probably remain closed in Oregon and California because of dwindling numbers of fish, and as a result prices for other wild West Coast salmon are predicted to be around $30 per pound. Salmon, even for families in Salmon, will be a delicacy.
