Swordfish are superior.

Trophies on the wall, real men on small boats with rods and reels, far out into the dangerous ocean, using muscle and guts and brains to battle a worthy foe.

Salmon are even grown on farms in dirty water, where they poop.

Even liberals don't mount stuffed salmon trophies on their walls.

Every Chinese bargain buffet keeps salmon out on the steam tables among the mystery meats, but to find swordfish at even the finest restaurants you better phone ahead and break out your wallet.

Swordfish should be grilled, like all fine foods.

..........swordfish wins only if it's super-fresh, otherwise Salmon is king. I've got a few 100,000 swimming by the house these days, got 4 for myself so far

Swordfish for sure. Our butcher usually has it in stock. Also for people who don't usually like fish, swordfish usually goes over pretty well.

Just curious, how do you catch them legally when they're running by the thousands up river to spawn? I wouldn't think they'd be too interested in biting a hook then, would they?

I use a fishing license and a flyrod. The don't bite to eat but rather out of anger and hormones. I use PistolPetes.

Salmon and tuna are commonly sold in cans. For cats.

Swordfish would love to jump up and stab you in the heart. Big game.

Salmon. I can get good salmon locally and the same cannot be said for swordfish.

If availability changed maybe my choice would also.

Salmon wins simply because it such a versatile fish and lends itself to so many techniques/cuisines.

For example...have you ever seen swordfish sushi? Nope...

What about smoked swordfish? Nope...

Swordfish Lachs? Nope...

Every serve swordfish medium rare? Nope...

Its pretty unidimensional fish. Mind you its not bad and can make a really nice grilled swordfish steak. But its got none of the finesse of Salmon.

And anyone who thinks all salmon is farmed is wacked...

I have a local supplier who sells wild caught New Zealand salmon that is unreal...

Salmon is just so versatile and wonderful in so many ways.

I make cured salmon lachs and use it on my version of Eggs Benedict as a substitute for canadian bacon...its awesome! Or just put a platter of lachs out at a party with some dill, lemon, capers and cream cheese and nice crackers...
