ORLANDO, Fla., May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Seasons 52, a fresh grill and wine bar with a seasonally inspired menu and an award winning wine list, announced today that wild Alaskan salmon is now on the menu for a limited time. Sourced from the glacial rivers of Alaska's famous Copper River, these fresh salmon are the first to spawn in the spring and are considered among the most flavorful and sought after fish in the world. For just a short while, guests can enjoy this rich, distinctly bright red salmon paired with seasonal sweet corn risotto, crisp toybox tomatoes and snap peas.
Wild Copper River salmon are sourced in Alaska, from the 10th largest river in the United States. A prized staple of the region, Copper River salmon embark on a 300 mile upstream swim each year from the Pacific Ocean to their natal glacial pools. To fuel this incredible journey, they store a higher-than-average reserve of Omega-3. This is what gives these particular fish the distinct red hue and remarkably flavorful, moist and nutrient-rich flesh.
"Every year we count down to the start of wild Alaska salmon season, kicking off with the incredible Copper River salmon," said Chef Jim Messinger. "This succulent fish is world renowned for a reason, and we are so pleased to have it on the menu for our guests this summer."
As one of the world's most sought after fish, sustainable sourcing for Copper River salmon is key. All Alaskan salmon is sustainably managed and wild, and the number of salmon traveling upstream is closely monitored from the time they leave the ocean to ensure future generations. This responsible sourcing limits availability of Copper River Salmon, but guests can enjoy fresh wild-caught salmon sourced from Alaska's many waterways until late summer.
