He replied, 'It's Steelhead. It's a kind of salmon. Steelhead salmon."
The head chef said, "Like Chinook or King salmon, but this is Steelhead salmon."
The busboys nodded their heads.
I said, "Steelhead is a kind of trout. I used to catch them in the American river. They are not salmon."
The seven or so guys in the kitchen shook their heads because I was such an idiot.
So, I asked if we were serving any cow wings for appetizers...or if we still only had Buffalo...just to keep crazy Steve form fileting me with his Steelhead salmon knife.
I am sure to this day they think Steelhead are salmon, and that evolutionary theory adequately provides "the answer". Oh, well.
