Skylon’s Summer Picks: Best Summer Dishes You Have to Try!
Summer is a season everyone loves because it’s the season that brings in longer days of sunlight, while the rays of sun fill the air with warmth. You can hear the buzz and laughter of people who’ve emerged from their homes and out of winter’s hibernation. For most Canadians, summer is sort of like a celebration. By this we mean, every day that we are graced with hot sunny weather, we won’t waste it. During the summer you’ll find that people are more inclined to get outdoors, making plans, and being adventurous. We can indulge in good food with refreshing cocktails and wine without feeling guilty because the hot weather becomes a good reason to spoil ourselves with a little more than usual. The Skylon Tower is one of the most popular Niagara Falls attractions and since we are in the business of food and dining, we decided to put together a list of our favourite summer dishes that’ll be sure to whet your appetite. Don’t let the summer pass you by without tasting these delicious summer eats!
In the summer, vegetable gardens are typically in full bloom, which is one of the reasons the Mediterranean Chicken is our first summer pick! With this dish, a tender and juicy marinated chicken breast is topped with deliciously dressed fresh vegetables: Tomatoes, bell peppers, onion, basil, oregano, and a sprinkle of feta cheese to help infuse all the flavours, served with rice pilaff. This dish will leave you feeling fresh, healthy, and satisfied!
There’s something very refreshing and cooling about citrus fruits, flavours, and scents which is why citrus fruits are a popular fruit in the summer. You’ll find that lemons, limes, and oranges are used in a variety of summer cocktails, salads, ice teas, and of course lemonade! When citrus is infused with cooking recipes, it’s a great natural way to add flavour while minimizing the use of table salt. Try a grilled fresh atlantic salmon with a soya lemon butter sauce, served with seven grain rice blend. It’s the perfect combination of tasty and healthy at the same time!
If you’re a seafood lover, the Seafood Symphony is like a dream come true for your taste buds. It’s a unique and tasteful compilation of a broiled fresh salmon filet, tiger shrimp, and sea scallops served on a bed of rice. Pair this delicious plate with a glass of Inniskillin Pinot Grigio for the ultimate dining experience. There’s no better option if you’re planning on treating yourself to a night of delectable seafood.
You can find all of these delicious dinner options at the Skylon Tower’s legendary Revolving Dining Room, 775 feet above the Niagara Falls. Our dining room slowly rotates in a complete circle, 360 degrees so no matter where you’re seated, you can take in the view of the Falls, the Niagara cityscape, wine district, and if you’re joining us after dark, you can see the illumination of the Falls beautifully lit up with the colours of the rainbow.
