8 Seafood Recipes for Summer

Summer is here!  

It is the time of sun-drenched days filled with backyard grilling, seasonal salads, and cold drinks. Naturally, at Harmons we celebrate the season by crafting crave-worthy meals to share with friends and family. Seafood is an especially good protein choice for the summer season because it requires little cooking time.  

Eat the essence of summer with this ocean-inspired list of eight recipes from our talented dietitian nutritionists and professional chefs. 

Fragrant aromatics like onion and ginger weave together this Hawaiian inspired dish flavored with toasted sesame oil, zesty jalapeño, and crunchy macadamia nuts. Forget the heat! This recipe involves no cooking, just a bit of chopping. We suggest serving it over brown rice to round out the meal. 

These are the perfect little number for summer gatherings. Cool shrimp salad dressed with a buttery avocado sauce is nestled into our artisan 7-grain rolls. 

Wow your guests with flambéed shrimp and caramelized Meyer lemon. Easy wilted greens add a colorful splash of green to this dish. 

Watch the video for Chef Lesli to guide you through the technique to perfectly grill fish. You’ll also learn how to make a summery compound butter with garden basil and lemon. 

Chef Lesli teaches another method to master grilled fish with an instructional video. This time, she guides us through creating abundant shellfish skewers featuring juicy shrimp, sweet scallops, and savory salmon. 

If you need a fast, delicious summer meal that won’t heat up the house, this is your ticket. Quick grilled shrimp is served with Harmons’ corn and black bean salad and garnished with a squeeze of fresh lemon. 

Keep the house cool and fire up the grill (or use a grill pan) to cook up some juicy shrimp. Serve over ripe, in-season melon with an easy side salsa. 

Silky potatoes, crisp veggies, and briny olives are the stars in this classic salad with tuna and eggs for satisfying protein. Once you try this recipe, you’ll make it again and again!

Local Flour Power

Driving south on I-15 through Utah County, the Lehi Mills building is hard to miss. It’s a historic landmark on the west side of the freeway as you pass Lehi. If you talk about it, most people will know the name. Whether it’s because of the flour they’ve been producing for years, or the fact that parts of a well-known movie, Footloose, were filmed there, Lehi Mills is as local as it is famous.

Originally named Lehi Roller Mills, the company was recently rebranded to Lehi Mills, but is still producing the same quality flour as before. They also make baking mixes that make eating locally easy as pie…or muffins. Harmons not only carries Lehi Mills products in our stores, but we use their flour exclusively in our artisan breads.

In this episode of the Taste of Harmons Podcast, Sheri Brailsford Cutler and Steve Brailsford join our hosts Chef Lesli Sommerdorf and Brandon Young. Sheri and Steve are from KEB Enterprises, and their father Ken Brailsford purchased Lehi Roller Mills in 2013. You’ll want to listen to the story of how the original owner’s family, the Robinsons, are still involved in the mill, along with how the Brailsford family has managed to keep the Mills local. 

Another guest on this podcast is Todd Berry, who has a longstanding history with Lehi Mills going back 35 years. He has learned the business literally from the ground up (he started out sweeping flours), and he shares a lot of information about the past along with day-to-day doings in the business of making flour. 

The Turkey Red and Peacock Brand logos that were historically included on the cotton flour bags are still painted on the building.

You’ll want to tune into the podcast to learn more about this great local company and it’s past, present, and future. 

If you enjoyed this podcast, listen to our other episodes here. Recent episodes include “The Coral Reef Rescue” with Brent Anderson of the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium and “The History of the Hamburger” with Chef Aaron Ballard.

Sheri Brailsford Cutler is the vice president for KEB Enterprises. She oversees marketing for each portfolio company, regulates the work environment, serves as the point of contact for each employee, and makes sure that they are succeeding in their positions. She also aids in planning and logistics.

When she’s not in meetings, you can find Sheri hiking, biking, kayaking, or traveling to a new place. Sheri enjoys spending time with her husband, five sons, two daughters-in-law, and two grandchildren.

Steve Brailsford brings expansive leadership and management experience to KEB. As president, he oversees each portfolio company and investigates local companies for promising potential investments. Steve is a highly valued voice among top private equity firms.

Steve loves to escape—his favorite places to be are the water and the mountains. Steve is an avid scuba diver and also loves spending time with his family in the mountains (away from cell coverage). He is also a passionate cyclist and often commutes 12 miles to work on his bike. One of Steve’s dreams is to sail around the world, but first he needs to learn how!

Todd Berry has worked for Lehi Mills for 35 years, literally from the ground up. He is currently the milling superintendent and director of quality of assurance, but he started out sweeping floors, packing flour, driving delivery trucks, and as a flour miller, production supervisor, warehouse manager, customer service manager, and a food safety audit specialist.

He worked his way through college while at the Mills, and after graduating from Utah State University he was asked to be a part of the management team. He likes to spend his off time with his family. He and his wife Sherri have seven children two daughters-in-law, and one grandson, and is looking forward to more grandchildren.

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. This art is the work of Jeffrey Hansen at our Station Park location. 

Guess What’s Back?

We’re so excited to be moving forward and reopening some of the extra services that make Harmons special. We just wanted you to know what you can look forward to in the next few months. Beginning June 1, 2021, the following items will be available again in-store.

Sampling is Back!

Sometimes you just need to taste something before you commit to taking it home. That’s where we come in. Harmons offers sampling of all items, and we’re happy to say it’s back! Whether it’s a new type of cheese you want to try or a flavor of gelato, we’re happy to let you sample it. i

Mezzanine Seating Is Open!

With the ready-to-eat foods that we offer, along with coffee and drinks, we have always meant for people to have a place to dine before they even leave the store. And now the mezzanine seating is back open! Everybody can find what they want and you can all meet back at the tables to mingle and dine. 

We’ve missed you. Welcome back.
