Sweet, succulent, flavorful: those are all words to describe the fresh fish we stock here at The Butcher Shop every single day. From salmon and halibut to lobsters and Dungeness crab, we receive seafood shipments five days out of the week from fishermen and women in local coastal towns whenever we can. That freshness ensures you get only top-quality, fresh-from-the-sea taste when it comes to all our seafoods in stock. For example, pick up some fresh Chinook salmon today and try a new recipe your family will enjoy while eating together.
Grilled Chinook Salmon with Lime Marinade
You’ll need just a few ingredients to make this marinade, great for any summer gathering around the grill. Combine 1/4 cup lime juice (preferably fresh squeezed), a tablespoon of olive oil, two teaspoons of Dijon mustard, 1/4 teaspoon each of ginger, garlic powder and cayenne, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Place four Chinook salmon steaks in a bowl of the marinade and let sit in the fridge for at least an hour. Place on a medium heat grill (brush it lightly with olive oil so it doesn’t stick) and leave on for about five to 10 minutes per side. Because Chinook salmon is so thick, it can be placed directly on the rack. If, however, you prefer to lock in those bold marinade flavors, you can place the salmon steaks in tin foil so they stew in their own juices. Cool and serve with corn on the cob, a bed of fresh greens, rice, succulent green beans or even potato salad for the perfect summer treat in the backyard. In fact, this recipe is versatile to many different kinds of fish, such as halibut, tuna and swordfish, so try it in any combination. We have it all in our shop, so come by and browse our selection any time.
Because we only buy from local fishing outfits nearby, you are guaranteed the fish hasn’t been sitting in a freezer for days on end. When you want fresh taste coupled with locally caught fish, come to The Butcher Shop.
