Salad Girl was introduced to Surrender Salmon by local foodie Weekly Dish talk show hostess and the brainchild of Makers of Minnesota Podcast, Stephanie Hansen. Stephanie suggested we reach out to see if Grant Niver would partner with us on some Spring recipes. Within a few days of our ask, I picked up some sushi grade frozen fillets of wild-caught sockeye Surrender salmon from my local fisherman. We cooked up a tasty you will ever taste! Stay tuned for the fish taco recipe in May. It will be perfect for Cinco de Mayo.
Locally Sourced Salmon is definitely not the first thing that springs to mind in when perusing your local farmers market, but fisherman-owned, Twin Cities-based Surrender Salmon totally changes that perception with their booth of flash-frozen Bristol Bay wild sockeye salmon at the Mpls Farmers Market. And after meeting Grant Niver, and tasting his families amazingly fresh salmon, I believe it's not only a sustainable choice but also one of the tastiest seafood options in Minnesota.
Surrender Salmon is a family owned business. The company name comes from their family Fishing Vessel
