Best Salmon in Seattle?

Jim Wong | Jul 4, 2000 04:26 PM

If anyone's awake out there -- I'd appreciate recommendations on SALMON. I have the fortune/misfortune (take your pick) of spending a few weeks in Seattle again, and would like to eat as much salmon as possible (helps me swim upstream while surfing).

Aside from the aforementioned Waterfront (last post), I have also tried a couple of those South-facing fish-N-chips places on Alaskan Way. Nothing to write home about, but that might just be because they were fried/tempurified (tempurated?). I've really got my mouth watered for something smoked/baked/broiled/grilled.

While out sailing last week, I caught sight of "Ivar's Salmon House" in Fremont. That looks far and away the best around, but I'd love to hear any feedback before I make the trek out there again. Their branch here on Alaskan Way is totally different -- seems to focus more on CLAMS than anything (except their takeout, which is just another fish-N-chips stand).

Anyway, any and ALL recommendations welcome!! Yeah, even for fried/salmon-N-chips, if you must....
