Snail in the Park
Slow Food Minnesota’s summer potluck and lecture series
Sustainable Seafood

Sunday, August 4, 2013, 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Boom Island Park, Pavilion A
800 Sibley St. NE, Minneapolis

Thirty-three guests learned about family-owned small, sustainable fisheries in Alaska and enjoyed several types of salmon. Our host was Helen Schnoes of Sitka Salmon Shares, who demonstrated the preparation of king, sockeye and coho salmon as well as sushi with white salmon. Participants compared salmon varieties and enjoyed potluck side dishes and desserts. Boom Island Park was an idyllic setting with its grass-covered hills, trees and a backdrop of the Minneapolis skyline.

Sitka Salmon Shares is a community supported fishery, operating very much like a CSA. They work with independent small-boat fishing families in southeast Alaska and provide salmon, halibut and cod to members. Read more about Sitka Salmon Shares >>
