Right now, Market Street restaurants are celebrating all things Salmon. The fresh, wild Alaskan salmon season recently began, and all Market Street Grill, Oyster Bar, and Fish Market locations are joining in. The “all Alaska” salmon line-up will vary this season between the following selections:
Coho – Distinguished by its orange-red color, fine texture, and moist finish
Copper River – Recognized by some as the world’s best eating salmon with a firm, yet delicate, texture
and rich flavor
King – In terms of flavor and texture, it deserves its royal status
Sockeye – A sought-after salmon species, named for its distinctive deep red flesh and rich flavor
The season runs into early September with delicious selections available at lunch and dinner, and even at breakfast at the Market Street Grill/Downtown. Bill McArthur, Chef at Market Street Grill/Oyster Bar-Cottonwood says, “It’s no secret that salmon is loaded with the health benefits provided by omega-3 fatty acids. Studies have shown that if you’re looking to boost your omega-3 intake, even one serving a week of wild Alaska salmon helps lower cholesterol and the risk of heart disease.”. Fresh, wild Alaska salmon filets are available at all Market Street Fish Markets for the home chef. And customers can purchase Market Street’s own freshly prepared Cucumber-Dill Sauce by the half-pint to serve with their salmon filets. Salmon recipe cards are also available, free for the taking, at all Fish Market locations.

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. I ate all the pies.
