SEATTLE – September 2010 – Through the end of the month, Salty’s Seafood Grill waterfront restaurants will celebrate the mightiest of them all, the king of the North Pacific – halibut! Though fresh Alaskan halibut is available at Salty’s starting in the springtime, it’s at its peak late summer, and you’ll find plenty of it on the menu at both Salty’s on Alki Beach and Redondo Beach during our “Just for the Halibut Festival.”
Halibut are at the top of the fish food chain and with their pristine white, flaky-firm flesh and light and delicately sweet flavor, Salty’s chefs have no trouble conquering the catch with Crispy Halibut Fritters, Grilled Halibut with Portobello Mushrooms and Salty’s Blackening Spiced Dusted Halibut, and much more.
This month’s featured dish, Pan-Seared Halibut with Local Vegetable Ratatouille, they’ll coax that sweet flavor with a melange of roasted summer vegetables, sourced straight from our backyard farmers. The fish is dusted with fennel pollen salt, an essence of aromatic summer fennel blossoms. In combination with the freshest local tomatoes, squash, eggplant and peppers, it doesn’t get much sweeter than that! Served alongside you’ll find rich Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes and a sweet and sour Balsamic Reduction sauce. Fried basil leaves will garnish the plate for a crisp, herbaceous finish to the dish.
Our sommeliers are recommending three-ounce tasters of Pinot Noir and Rose. The wines feature a high acid level and bold fruit that makes for a lively fresh feast. Rose is a wine that respects the freshness of the garden and dances around the flavors of the season with a feathery touch that compliments and lifts the nuances of our local garden bounty. Turn your dinner into an adventure by ordering a three-ounce taster of each.
Make your reservation today to get in on Salty’s “Just for the Halibut” Festival feast. A gorgeous view and outdoor dining awaits at your premiere Seattle, South Seattle, or Portland waterfront seafood restaurant.
