King Salmon and Halibut Brochette with Mango Salsa

In light of the season of salmon and stone fruits coming to an end this year, our chefs present this exciting summer dish. Brochettes, or skewers will be loaded up with generous chunks of salmon and halibut. Then, after marinating them in olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, chopped dill, parsley, mint and cracked peppercorns, the meat will be grilled similar to a summer backyard bbq. Calrose rice wrapped in a banana leaf purse and a salsa of diced mangos accompany this fish meat to complete this last summer hurrah dish.
