The Sacramento Salmon Swap


My fiancé, Stefan, recently went on an Alaskan fishing adventure with his father and grandfather. They stayed at Alaska’s Sea Otter Sound Lodge, which is located 100 miles by float plane from Ketchikan. Some of the highlights of the trip were the gorgeous scenery, sea otters, seals, bald eagles and humpback whale sightings.

After five days of non-stop fishing, the three of them had caught more than 300 pounds of fish – mostly salmon! This would be great news for any seafood lover, but my seafood experiences rarely venture beyond shrimp and clam chowder.

I made the decision to be optimistic and proactive with this bounty of salmon – it was falling out of my freezer, what choice did I have? I decided to swap some salmon with the seafood lovers in our office, in exchange for some tasty recipes. I’m hoping they will inspire me with their favorite salmon dishes – stay tuned for their culinary creations!

    Wow – I knew the salmon you gave us was from Alaska, but this place looks absolutely pristine! I’m on the search for a worthy-recipe 😉

    Looks lovely. And as for the salmon, that’s a jackpot considering no one can fish salmon down here with the ban. Salmon lovers like me are jealous!
