Huckleberry Witbier and Lime Marinated Copper River Salmon

It is Copper River salmon time again at Missoula Fresh Market! Each late May, we are treated to these unbelievable salmon with a bright red flesh, a firm texture, and a rich flavor that makes them a very delicious dining experience. They possess a high fat and oil content, which is why Copper River salmon are recognized as some of the world’s best-eating salmon. In this recipe, we marinated a couple of gorgeous salmon fillets in a mixture of Huckleberry Chapel from Selkirk Abbey and lime. Then, we grilled them on the Big Green Egg and served alongside a grilled vegetable medley.
