Seafood fits the special occasion bill

 For example, Scott’s Seafood Bar and Grill in Folsom and Sacramento, Calif., is featuring its regular seafood and meat menu on Thanksgiving Day, along with an Oven Roasted Diesel Ranch Turkey dinner for USD 27.95. “Between 50 and 60 percent of what we sell will be turkey, but around 30 percent will be seafood, and the remaining portion will likely be steak or pork,” said Greg Dunn, executive chef of Scott’s Seafood.

 The most popular seafood dishes for Thanksgiving will be Scott’s Macadamia Nut Crusted Alaskan Halibut – its best-seller year-round – and its Basil-Mustard Crusted Duart Salmon. “In the past we have run a more limited menu for Thanksgiving, but people complain about not having enough options for those who don’t want turkey. Our regulars are looking for new and different things,” Dunn said.
