Seattle – Smart Catch Pop-Up

Wednesday was the last night of four dinners to celebrate the launch of Smart Catch a new sustainable seafood association.  Their aim is to have restaurants serve 90+% sustainable seafood. It was a free dinner and each night there were only 50 tickets. Friends visiting from CT went Tuesday night and graciously got tickets for K and me since I wasn’t able to be online when they became available.

My favorite was the white king salmon, something that isn’t served in many restaurants.


Smoked Pacific Cod: borlotti beans, sage, charred crostini, fresno chili – chef Hetherington


Marbled King Salmon Crudo: tamworth coppa, fennel pickles, shady acres nasturtium, olive oile, whidbey island sea salt – chef McGill


Olive Oil Poach Sockeye Salmon: avocado, zucchini, relish, morels – chef Hetherington


Sablefish A La Plancha: charred and pickled cauliflower puree, salted persephone farm summer squash, purslane and sea beans – chef McGill

    Looks like a great meal. I went on Tuesday and two dishes were good and two were duds.
