Adventure. Variety. A taste of the unexpected these are the things that vacationers the world over dream of when they think of Alaska. And what do these vacationers eat in their dreams? Why tasty new foods, prepared in exciting new ways that are bold, unique and memorable. We love our Alaskan community, which is a special one made up of fishermen and people who love to be outside. A passion for great food and a great environment drives what we do. Which is how this book came about. With four cookbooks under our belts, and 30 years of commercial fishing, my husband Ole and I have gathered and researched reams of information about every kind of fish from salmon, to halibut to crab and shrimp. For us, this book was an opportunity to share the most interesting things we’ve learned about the Wild Alaska Halibut, along with thirty six of our favorite recipes. Inside, you’ll find simple dishes for quick suppers, intriguing recipes for serving guests and hearty main courses for satisfying meals. Most recipes serve four, but any of them can be cut in half or doubled. Although this book focuses on Halibut, there are a few other fish available that can be used as a substitute. Bass, grouper, swordfish, tuna and mahi mahi all work well. Though this book is mini, it will satisfy some mighty appetites and introduce you to the world of Alaskan cuisine! Whether it’s Hazelnut-Crusted Halibut with Apple Salsa, Halibut Chowder or Halibut Burgers these treasured dishes are sure to be loved by all.
