Fresh off the boat, hot from the grill, served at Fishtival!

As always, we're deeply touched by having such a great turn-out year after year at our annual Fishtival event. We try our best each year to raise the bar; and we think this year, our grilling team did just that. 

Throughout the day, Josh Jensen, our very own in-house grill master, spent the day whipping up and demonstrating three recipes that he knew would get our customers buzzing.

2 mangoes, peeled and diced
1/2 pineapple, cored and diced
