This colorful seafood platter comes together easily and is perfect for serving a crowd on the 4th of July or at your next pool party. Serve it along with a green salad or grilled vegetables such as zucchini and bell peppers.
A gas or charcoal grill is ideal for this recipe, though the salmon and halibut can be seared in a grill pan on the stovetop and the potatoes can be roasted in a 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes if you do not have one. A grilling basket is used for grilling the potatoes so they do not fall through the grates, but a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil with the sides rolled up could be used in a pinch.
Blue edible flowers make for a fun colorful garnish with a patriotic flair when paired with the red sockeye and white halibut. Borage, bachelor's button, pansies, and violas are all edible flowers that come in shades of blue, and may be blooming in your garden or available at your local farmers market. If you are making this dish for an occasion other than the 4th of July and want to add more color, nasturtiums, calendula, chive flowers, or dianthus are all great edible flower options.
