Safeco Field offers salmon salad…gotta love it

Seattle is the salmon capital of the continental United States (Alaska does a pretty good job of it as well) but even knowing Seattle’s salmon reputation, I wasn’t prepared to find salmon sold at the Seattle Mariners’ ballpark, Safeco Field.

Salmon salad was a great surprise at Safeco Field in Seattle. Bring your own oil and vinegar packets so you can spike the high-fat dressing.

But that’s where I found it, specifically atop a salad. Ballparks are where we eat hot dogs, but hot dogs have been off my menu since my angioplasty two years ago. That makes going to a baseball game much less fun for me than it once was. I usually can scrounge up a chicken breast sandwich now.

The size of the salmon was adequate for the size salad. The price was something like $12, ballpark prices but ok. The salmon itself was average tasting but pleasant for ballpark fare. I had my own oil and vinegar so I didn’t use the high-fat, high-salt Caesar dressing that normally would have come with the salad.

Splurge on the garlic fries at Safeco Field. They were a garlic-lover's dream.

Why not splurge with a hot dog? Well, I take my splurges sparingly these days and I had another in mind for this trip, a friend who lives in Seattle and came to the game with us had told us about something called garlic fries that also are sold at the park. As a garlic lover I had to try these and I was not disappointed. Fries came buried in mountains of chopped up garlic. If you love garlic try these next time you’re in Seattle. I ate a few as a splurge and loved them.
