Favorite seafood recipe?

Roasted King Salmon. I get a cast iron skillet nice and hot on the stove top with a little olive oil. The salmon goes on skin side down for about 4-5 minutes. Meanwhile the oven has been preheated to 375 degrees. After 4-5 minutes skin side down on the skillet I flip the fish to flesh side down and immediately place the whole pan into the preheated oven for another 4-5 minutes. Enjoy!

Why should customers come to Pike Place Fish?

To buy the freshest fish in the World and have a great time doing it. Also know that the fish you are buying is always caught in a sustainable fashion and good for the earth.

Do you have a favorite moment at Pike Place Fish?

The first time working on the Salmon Bench and throwing a fish! I remember watching the guys as a kid doing it and couldn’t believe I was there doing it myself now.
