Chef Scotty was hand-selected as the Executive Chef to open the iconic Salty’s on Redondo and continued as Executive Banquet Chef at Salty’s on Alki until 1997.
Developing a reputation, Scotty prepared culinary delights for the Eagles Tour, Paul Allen’s Ticketmaster Christmas Party & Sea Fair for Budweiser Hydro just to name a few high profile events.
Scotty and his wife Cindy participate in various festivals in and around Seattle including, Sorticulture, Bellevue Art Museum, Issaquah Salmon Days and Edmonds Art Festival.. These festivals have garnered several awards including Best Entrée for the famous Blackened Salmon Caesar Salad.
Scotty’s motto is “Fresh of Course,” using fresh and healthy products at a fair cost. EAT MORE FISH!
