Two-Catch Tuesday
Tuesday, August 26th
8:00 AM
seafood depatment , 2 for $10

With grilling season in full force, we’re offering an amazing deal on some of our best fish for summer feasts. Our seafood teams in Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Idaho will hand-select some of their favorite fish each Tuesday just for you. Take your pick and get 2 portions for just $10. While our seafood team members can share their favorite recipes with you, here are a few pointers:

SALMON–Coat it lightly with oil and sprinkle it with salt and pepper, and let the salmon speak for itself. Then throw it directly on to the grill for 8-10 minutes. Salmon is fantastic with roasted young potatoes and grilled asparagus, but you really can’t go wrong.

MAHI MAHI–A milder fish, mahi mahi is perfect for kabobs, fish tacos, or Thai lettuce wraps that already have lots of other flavors going on. Marinade your mahi mahi in a citrus vinaigrette for 15-20 minutes, then grill it for about 8 minutes.

HALIBUT– This fish is best when grilled on a cedar plank which infuses a gentle and delicious naturally smoked flavor, plus keep the fish from falling into the fire. Ask a team member to point you in the right direction.

COD– Cod is an amazing entry fish for those looking for a milder flavor. It will simply take on whatever flavors you cook with it. Best grilled on a sheet of foil, this flakey fish is amazing with panko. Simply beat a couple of eggs, dip the fish into the egg, then cover it with panko breadcrumbs for a light and crispy breading. Serve with a slaw and Asian sesame dressing and your senses will thank you.
