For the Skewers

  • 1 1/2 lbs. sockeye salmon, pin bones and skin removed, cut into 2-inch cubes

  • 1-2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 10 minutes before use

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
