Ray’s Restaurants Serving Prized Salmon
Ray’s three locations (Ray’s on the River, Ray’s in the City and Ray’s at Killer Creek) are currently carrying Copper River salmon, a highly valued and often difficult to find fish. The Copper River traces 300-miles of Alaskan wilderness and provides the setting for one of the longest and most challenging salmon migrations in the world. As a result, Copper River King salmon, the most sought after of all Pacific salmon species, carry extra stores of fat to protect them from the icy waters and ensure they finish the trek. The fishes’ naturally high Omega-3 oil content, brilliant color and firm texture makes for a flavorful and texture-rich meal. Copper River King salmon season runs through the end of June, so get yours while they’re fresh.
Two other types of salmon captured from Copper River will be available seasonally, with one going out of season at the end of July and the other being available only in August and September. For more information, please visit raysrestaurants.com.
