Growing up in Oregon, fresh and delicious Pacific Northwest salmon was a staple food for our family.

Some of my fondest memories are of joining my family and their friends on charter fishing boats. We would leave Astoria, traveling over the Mouth of the Columbia River and into the deep sea to fish salmon.

My grandmother, Nanny, always prepared the most fabulous egg sauce to serve over our freshly caught fish. Originating with the Pacific Northwest settlers of my family, this recipe has been handed down for generations.

Tip: Serve with our delicious creamed spinach and croissants.
