Ray’s Boathouse: a Seattle gem

My love of salmon made Seattle a logical vacation spot for my wife and I. Seattle is awash in salmon. Indeed we had it everywhere from Pike’s Place Market to Safeco Field. How many baseball stadiums have a salmon offering on their menus? But when we ate out with a good friend of ours who lives in Seattle, she took us to a wonderful place we wouldn’t have found on our own, Ray’s Boathouse.

Seattle is a wonderful place to eat fresh salmon. I had it four days straight, including this wonderful offering at Ray's Boathouse.
My salmon at Ray’s Boathouse in Seattle…wonderful.

Ray’s served me the best salmon I had during my time in Seattle. I asked for it and the asparagus and potatoes that accompanied it with no salt, as I usually do. The special request was not a problem for Ray’s The salmon was the thickest I had in Seattle, and so wonderfully flavorful.

My wife ordered her favorite, halibut, and called it the best halibut she’d ever had, high praise indeed from such a halibut fan. The atmosphere was upscale casual and the place is mammoth, so we had no trouble being seated fairly quickly after we arrived.

Ray’s is a special place to visit should you be in Seattle, enjoy.

    1. Mien too. I’m amazed that many restaurants now are serving salmon with various herbed butters on them, as if salmon needs more fat! I always ask for it without any butter, it’s delicious as it is.

      1. It so delicious! Served simply steamed with some herbs and sometimes I use just a little olive oil but no butter or anything else. It’s also lovely with acidic fruit like oranges and lime…
