A Seafood Feast

August 26, 2011 – 4:13 am

To welcome my parents to the Pacific Northwest, we stopped by Central Market and picked up some great looking seafood that we proceeded to grill up along with some of the ubiquitous and delicious CSA summer squash. We got a nice fillet of sockeye salmon wild caught in Alaska, some U15 American farmed shrimp, and some more of the Evening Cove Oysters.

The salmon was lightly seasoned with kosher salt and black pepper, layered with thin slices of lemon, and wrapped in foil. Similar treatment for the squash, thinly sliced, seasoned with salt and pepper, and wrapped in foil. The oysters were placed on a foil lined baking sheet set on the grill, and the shrimp were drizzled with a touch of olive oil and placed in a foil packet as well. Everything was grilled over medium heat for about 30 minutes, which steamed the squash, nicely roasted the oysters and salmon, and beautifully cooked the shrimp. My parents loved everything. 🙂 Welcome back to the Northwest!
