With peak salmon season in full swing, we wanted to talk to the experts: the fishers of Sitka, Alaska. We hop on the boat with Alaskans Own, a not-for-profit community supported fishery that donates its profits to the Seafood Donation Program and Fishery Conservation Network. We speak to them about why you should consider buying frozen fish — from its nutrients that are preserved right on the boat to the guaranteed transparency of the packing and shipping conditions.
Finally, chef duo and husband and wife Lucas and Mary Goddard of Forest Fresh Alaska, a cooking blog inspired by their hands-on approach of using foraged and harvested indigenous ingredients from the nearby ocean and rainforests, show us four brilliant ways to use salmon — from a simple grilled fillet to smoked salmon sushi lollipops.
Wild-caught Alaskan salmon are no easy catch, but Alaskans Own is doing so and going a step further by promoting healthy oceans and fisher advocacy.
Go fishing for wild-caught salmon in Alaska and see how it’s a cultural centerpiece highlighted with indigenous and foraged foods.
Embrace the freeze! Fresh-frozen fish has many benefits, not the least of which is preservation of nutrients, structure and texture of the fish.
