In the latest episode of the Taste of Harmons Podcast, our hosts Chef Lesli Sommerdorf and Brandon Young are joined by Chris Smith and Ashley Quadros. Chris is our director of meat and seafood for Harmons, and Ashley is one of our amazing dietitians, and together they are sharing some really important and relevant information about sustainable seafood.

August 10-16, 2021, is wild salmon week at Harmons, and it’s a great time to get savings on the freshest wild salmon. Chris and Ashley share their knowledge of how we get the tasty king, sockeye, and soho salmon, along with a lot of other seafood and fish that make healthy eating a tasty breeze.

In case you are wondering how to cook up your salmon, dietitian Ashley offers some great tips here, and we have multiple recipes that you can try while taking advantage of the salmon savings.

Chris Smith has lived in Utah his entire life, and he started his Harmons grocery career in 1982 in the meat department. For a brief time, he ran the Kitchen at the Harmons East store (now known as 7th Street), and then ran the bakery department at the East Store for a few years before returning to the meat department to open the Cougar store in 1995. He moved to the Support Office in 1988, and has worked there ever since, serving as the meat and seafood sales director.

At Harmons, we’re lucky to have incredibly talented artists at each store, and we’re sure you’ve seen their amazing chalk art as you wander throughout every location. We’re excited to be able to feature some of their work as the featured art on our podcast blog. The featured art is the work of James Bennion of our Bangerter Crossing location, and the second picture is by Kirsten Beitler of our Santa Clara location.
