Hurry in to the Boathouse to enjoy an 8-ounce, pan-seared, fresh Ivory King salmon from Southeast Alaska, accompanied by Washington asparagus, mushroom medley, asparagus puree, and stone ground mustard beurre blanc for $46. #ivorykingsalmon #wildalaskasalmon #freshsalmon #salmonseason #whitehot

Something delicious has landed at Ray's Boathouse, served tonight through Saturday (or while it lasts!): Fresh Kodiak Island (AK) pan-seared halibut, carrot puree, fiddlehead ferns, King oyster mushrooms, crispy Yukon gold potatoes, with roasted pistachio nuts and popcorn shoots ($46).
