This weekend’s cool, rainy weather was far from your typical Memorial Day intro to summer and this weekend’s fishy fare was far from your typical Memorial Day barbeque. If we’re going to be different, let’s go all out.
But although the weather was kind of crummy, this meal was just the opposite. We grilled salmon to mark the occasion and it was absolutely delicious.
And not just any salmon! Harmoniously Raised Verlasso® salmon, from our friends at Heinen’s. I love Heinen’s and I’m SO glad they’re here in Cleveland. Although I’m not sure they’re so glad I’m here in Cleveland, as I usually shop there several days a week straight from the gym (sorry).
In any case, I realize sustainable seafood is most certainly the way to go. My sister is a huge environmental advocate and she and her boyfriend only ever purchase sustainable options. I am not always that well-behaved myself…but I do mean to try harder.
Fresh flavor with a buttery melt-in-your-mouth texture, this dish was absolutely fantastic. So if eating sustainably always tastes like this, it shouldn’t be so hard at all.
