Smoked Halibut Dip

You’d never know by looking outside that spring is here and summer is right around the corner.  It is currently dumping snow and we have accumulated at least 6 inches since we woke up this morning.  We bought me a brand new super fancy road bike earlier this week, so of course Father Winter had … [Follow your taste buds…]

Panko Parmesan Crusted Salmon

Downward dog, half moon, warrior 1 or 2 or 3 (or 4 is on the floor), clavicle, ischial tuberosity, piriformis, “23 yogis”, garudasana, ustrasana, vrksasana, mulabanda, vyana vayu, Ganesh, the Trimurti, and more.  That’s been my life for the last month as we are deep in the heart of Yoga Teacher Training.  And when not … [Follow your taste buds…]

Soy Seared Salmon

We eat so much salmon around here that I oftentimes forget to blog about it.  It’s like cereal–a staple of our regular diet.  This year’s supply of sockeye came entirely from our own dipnetting efforts.  Ryan fished while I read books/attempted to not freeze in our “lovely” July weather that averaged 48 degrees.  Well, this … [Follow your taste buds…]

Restaurant Worthy Salmon Cakes with Wasabi Vinegar Sauce

I have made plenty of things that are restaurant worthy throughout my time in the kitchen.  A few are appetizers or meals, but almost all of these items are baked goods; most recently the bunny cake, but also the prima donna brownies, the highly versatile and kid-friendly sugar cookiecake bars, any variation of the fruit pie, and of course … [Follow your taste buds…]

Freezer Full of Fish

The Last Frontier has the best fish in the world.  I am trying to come up with something witty and creative to follow this sentence to reiterate how incredible our fish is up here, but can’t come up with anything.  There is no argument.  It is the best.  Our family has countless memories of Alaskan … [Follow your taste buds…]
