Showing our respect for a King!
Spring starts the season for KING SALMON, generally June through July for the Alaska Yukon River Kings and May through October for Copper River salmon often caught off the coast of Oregon . Luckily this year with Easter so early we are able to get the very first of the of the nearly 100,000 kings that will be caught this year from the Yukon River. These fish swim, without eating, nearly 2000 miles over 60 days to their spawning grounds. This means their fat stores are about 25% of their body weight and given the cold waters and long winters these fat fish make for juicy and rich eating at the table. Copper River salmon are almost as rich with Omega 3 oils, again making both varieties our favorite for eating simply seared and the belly pieces for smoking. So it is with all due respect we invite you to experience fresh troll caught salmon–the first of the season at our EVOO table.
Ode a favorite spring green thing!
When writing a menu for spring, asparagus is the first food we think of. After all the season is only about 2 months long, starting in April! To grow it is a study in dedication because it takes at least three years for the first crop. After that with love, lots of sunshine and water, asparagus plants will last two or three decades. First asparagus of the season around here from Yakama, WA followed by Canby, OR. We are delighted to mark its return at our EASTER table on April 4. When we lived in Wash DC we loved to go to a favorite Bethesda restaurant serving German cuisine, where they celebrated every Spring with a pound of asparagus per person with every entree! We got our fill! In addition they offered different varieties, including white asparagus. Join us this spring for one of the most popular foods on EVOO spring menus.
