    With new seasonal produce comes new culinary possibilities. Our recommendation? Take advantage of spring ingredients by pairing them with the delicious, fresh seafood in your Sitka Seafood Market box. Here’s how:

    Pepper-Crusted Tuna Niçoise

    We might be biased, but nothing beats the savory taste of seared tuna—especially when served with peppery arugula, crisp green beans, and a tangy mustard, caper, and olive vinaigrette. If you don’t care for tuna, we’ve got you covered with an equally gorgeous salmon version. Serve this al fresco on the first nice day of the season—if you can wait that long.

    Herb Marinated Sablefish with Spring Vegetables

    A quick sauté and toss in an herby vinaigrette renders the spring vegetables in this sablefish (black cod) recipe delightfully crunchy and flavorful—a perfect welcome to spring. Feel free to sub in any vegetables you like, but keep an eye out for what’s in season at your local farmers’ market or produce stand, as those will have the best flavor.

    Dungeness Crab Risotto with Meyer Lemon and Pea Shoots

    Tender pea shoots are worth seeking for this recipe, but any fresh micro greens or even baby arugula would be delicious with this rich, creamy Dungeness crab risotto. We recommend serving it with roasted or steamed asparagus alongside for added springtime goodness.

    Sheet Pan Salmon with Wild Mushrooms and Leeks

    All hail the mighty leek! In this simple sheet-pan recipe, aromatic leeks and earthy wild mushrooms make the perfect base for fresh salmon. For seasoned mushroom hunters, this recipe may be the perfect opportunity to don your foraging basket. Otherwise, play it safe with the mushrooms at your local market or farm stand—they’ll be just as delicious.
