    Copper River King Salmon, is on the nightly menu for just the few weeks that it’s available each year.

    The powerful fish fights its way 25 miles upriver to spawn in Alaska’s icy, pure Copper River, which makes it especially fatty, full of heart-healthy omega-3s and creates a deep orange color and amazing flavor. Fans of the fish wait for the e-mail from Artist Point to let them know it’s arrived and head to Walt Disney World Resort just for a taste.

    “King Salmon has a delicate, buttery texture and rich and nutty flavor…comparing it to farm-raised salmon is like comparing select beef to prime beef,” says Chef Marco Chaves. He roasts the melt-in-your-mouth fish (medium-rare recommended) on a cedar plank then serves it with artichokes, baby zucchini and carrots sautéed in butter and tangy bacon-egg vinaigrette. Artist Point sommelier Michael Scheifler pairs the dish with an Oregon pinot noir – yes, it’s a red but “a match made in heaven,” says Michael.
