Nationally renowned restaurateur Roger Berkowitz heads up the acclaimed Legal Sea Foods chain.
He recently announced that his restaurants aim to double their use of Alaskan wild salmon while reducing use of the farmed product, and make Alaska wild salmon its salmon of choice.
Legal has announced that it will be disclosing the origin of all salmon served in its 30 restaurants from Massachusetts to Florida, with a "seal of authenticity" that will accompany every dish of Alaskan wild salmon served. (To find a Legal Sea Foods restaurant near you, click here.)
As part of this initiative, Legal's award-winning Executive Chef, Richard Vellante, is developing some creative new recipes for Alaskan wild salmon.
They include this delicious Asian-style dish, which Legal and Chef Vellante graciously offered for our customers' use and enjoyment.
