Thanks miKe.  I was referring to the cake, but I have wanted the twice 
smoked recipe ever since I had the tuna version when I visited you.  It was 
excellent - the best "tuna sandwich" I ever had.  I will look up the cake 
recipe on your site.  It is much harder to get quality salmon here in 
Michigan than in the PNW unless you fish for them in Lake Michigan.  We have 
Chinook and Coho, but they taste differently grown in fresh water.  I know 
several people who sna... er "foul hook" them when they make their spawning 
run.  Those are all old fish about to die and they have a very strong, not 
particularly pleasant flavor.  For big bucks, we can get fresh frozen wild 
Alaska salmon sometimes, but mostly we get farm raised Atlantic, which is a 
poor imitation.  I have also tried wild caught from China, but food from 
China, other than Chinese condiments scares me.  I can usually get fresh 
frozen sushi grade tuna, but it is also costly.  Not being near an ocean 
port, frozen seafood is actually fresher here than never frozen except for 
the high end restaurants that fly it in fresh.  Sorry for the digression.

I thank my lucky stars for Costco--I can get fresh or flash-frozen  
(i.e., on the boat) Pacific salmon as cheaply there as some places  
charge for farmed Atlantic.  But when it's Copper River season, I bite  
the bullet and head for my local fish market (Dirks, Burhops', etc.)  
or Whole Foods (unless I'm anywhere near Seattle, within a day's drive  
of Pike Place Mkt.) and pay through the nose for the privilege of  
pleasing my palate.
Chicago is practically an "ocean port" due to the demand from foodies  
and upscale restaurants.  (But then again, I was in Ann Arbor last  
week, and was lucky enough to get a great interest rate on a mortgage  
for a hunk of chevre from Zingerman's).
