From Grand Salami to Colossal Sausage

Chef Jon's Salmon Sausage 006.jpgThere should be a throwdown between the cooks from Safeco Field and Qwest Field.

The Mariners offer some of nation’s most diverse ballpark menus from sushi to edamame boxes. Now come the Seahawks, who will roll out a new concession menu including a two-foot salmon sausage topped with basil cream cheese, capers, grilled red onions and served on a baguette.

The sausage will cost $28 and serves up to four people — or a left tackle.

The idea came from Jon Severson, executive chef of Levy Restaurants in Chicago, which oversees the concession menu at the Seahawk stadium as well as the menus at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Lambeau Field in Green Bay and Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Severson contracted Uli’s Famous Sausage in Pike Place Market to make the two-foot dog, uh, fish at Qwest Field this season. ”We wanted to come up with a ‘Wow,’ something that you couldn’t get anywhere else,” Severson said.

That salmon sausage will be sold at ”Seattle dog” concession stand- between sections 133 and 137. A special hot dog will also be featured at every home game. Look out for a sirloin chili and cheese hot dog and a cheddar cheese dog with grilled onions in the coming weeks.

Other concession food to debut this season includes Barbacoa beef burrito with cilantro rice, pinto beans and jack cheese, ($8.75) and the Beef Stroganoff ($8.50).
