Salty’s Prawn Boil Entices You to Be Shellfish

The prawns will be boiling on the deck of Salty’s at Alki, plumping up in a delicious concoction of pickling spices, Tabasco, Worcestershire, and lemon, and then ready to enjoy with your favorite sauce.

Prawn In the midst of all the gustatory enjoyment, you can help raise funds for local food banks by enjoying some prawn-related games.  Games are scheduled from 5:30-7:30 pm, and include a prawn peeling contest where you get to square off against a chef and see who can peel more in 60-seconds (entry fee$5), a bottle toss (entry fee $1), and costume contest (dress all in pink).  Game participants get a chance to win cool prizes and will receive a free t-shirt (while supplies last).  The big winners, however, are the food banks which get much needed contributions at a time when need is great.

With great views from nearly every table, Salty’s is known for both its food and its location.  They also provide transportation from most hotels in the Seattle area, offering a great value-added for visitors who aren’t staying in West Seattle or who don’t have a car.   You can arrange it through your hotel concierge or by calling the restaurant directly.
