    I love the ultra-fresh taste and mouth-feel of fennel. So when I came across this recipe in Bon Appétit Magazine, I had give it try. The recipe calls for Char (we call it dolly varden in Alaska). “Dolly” is a beautiful game fish which I spent many snowy November days pursuing with my father, but is an inferior […]

    Yum I made this the other day for my family and it was so good. Lovely too. Give it a try, but be warned, it’s very rich so eat a modest portion and savor every bite. Also bear in mind that this recipe makes 4 large servings. I had a lot of leftovers. Halving it […]

    This fall my father, Gordon, and I went out on Kachemak Bay to fish for halibut. Despite low expectations, we hit the jackpot with this 106 pounder! It was a great subsistence day on the water with dad.

    Yum   King crab is so good that it only needs the faintest hint of something to make it perfect. This can be as simple as some salt and lemons in the steaming water, or, it could be something a little more Eastern–lemongrass say. Serves: 4 Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Ingredients: […]
