A new season for seafood lovers

Two prized catches at this time of year include soft-shell crabs and wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon from the Copper River.

Owner of Dirk's Fish and Gourmet Shop, Dirk Fucik talked about these two in-season catches with ABC7's Hungry Hound Steve Dolinsky on Friday.

You could certainly shop for seafood in a giant grocery store, but one of the nice things about visiting a small shop is that you get to talk to the fishmonger, find out what's in-season and even get some cooking tips. Dolinsky says Dirk Fucik is one such guy.
