First of the Season Copper River Salmon
My husband loves a party and people so he was game to be at SeaTac airport at 5:30 am. Oh it was cold but how fitting for the first arrival of King salmon of the season. Yes Copper River King Salmon to be exact arriving via 737 on Alaska Airlines at 6:30 AM at Seattle Tacoma International Airport yesterday morning Tuesday the 17th of May. Under blue skies Alaska Airlines gathered a select group of foodies, fish purveyors including Trident Seafoods and frequent fliers to gather for this second annual Fish Extravaganza albeit temperatures in mid to upper thirties! Dare he complain since the chefs and their crew arrived several hours earlier in the dark to fire up the grills including the likes of Lane Hoss, 25 year veteran of last year’s winner, Anthony’s restaurants. The other restaurants included Elliots and Sky City at the Space Needle. After much fanfare from the energetic MC John Curley, Anthony’s again reigend supreme to capture the title for a second year in a row. Thank you Alaska Airlines for a fun way to capture a great Northwest tradition....Salmon!
