Wednesday: August 21st Savoring Salmon
Chef Miller will discuss sustainably farmed salmon including King Salmon (chinook), Sockeye (red), Coho (silver), Keta (chum), and Pink (humpy). According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), 70% of the salmon on the market is farmed. Salmon expert Maureen C. Berry explains that without farmed salmon, the market demands in the US could not be met. Health experts believe the benefits of eating farmed salmon outweigh the risks. Chef Miller will share his easy-to-prepare recipes such as smoked salmon tartine, salmon-potato cakes, and mustard- and dill-glazed grilled salmon using a variety of species, and two recipes inspired by Maureen C. Berry, author of Salmon: From Market to Plate (the quintessential quick salmon guide).
