Running with the Salmon!

Some friends from California came to visit us last week and we had an awesome time visiting and showing them around Seattle.  

On Tuesday, we were blessed with beautiful weather; so, we went to the locks in Ballard. We actually got to see the locks in action! Some boats were moving from Lake Union to the Puget Sound and it was interesting to watch the process. We also saw some of the ships from the show “Deadliest Catch”. Since it was salmon season we were able to see the salmon in the fish ladder on their way to the spawning grounds. I was trying to figure out how to snag a salmon for dinner without anyone noticing, but decided just to wait and buy some fish at Pike’s.

Of course we had to take them to the famous Pike’s Place Market. We visited the first Starbucks; however, our friends aren’t too keen on over roasted coffee so I’m not sure that they were very impressed. At the market we bought raspberries, blueberries, peaches, and enough salmon to feed an army. Tamira and I made the Salmon for dinner with some risotto and salad. Then, I used the berries to make a mixed berry crisp that I served with Tillamook Vanilla bean ice cream.
