Copper River Salmon at Seasons 52 + Recipe

Seasons 52 is seasonal offering of one of the world’s best-tasting varieties of wild salmon – Copper River Salmon. Available for lunch and dinner, Seasons 52’s Grilled Alaska Wild Copper River Salmon is served over summer corn risotto with roasted asparagus, grilled red peppers and dill mustard sauce. The salmon will be featured beginning May 29, and due to its limited availability, will only be featured on the menu for seven weeks.

To complete the meal, Seasons 52’s Master Sommelier George Miliotes suggests pairing with the Lioco Indica Rosé, Mendocino ’11 off his “Drink These Before They Become Famous” list, a handpicked selection of must-try wines for the season. “It’s an all-natural wine with lovely aromas and ripe flavors of red raspberries and strawberries, the Lioco Indica Rosé’s crispness and pleasantly dry finish balance well with the rich, fresh flavor of the Copper River Salmon,” said Militoes.
