Alaskan Salmon: Flash-Frozen and Flown-In
I love salmon. Some people think it’s too “fishy” compared to whiter fish, but to me that’s a selling point.
I was thrilled to be contacted by Christine on behalf of Alaska Seafood, who coordinated a shipment so that I would be able to try some Alaskan Salmon and also provided the following information.
Frozen Alaska seafood is one of the highest-quality seafood choices available. It’s flash-frozen within hours of the catch—in fact, it’s often frozen at sea.
The website www.alaskaseafood.org is loaded with information about the Alaska seafood industry, including species, health and nutrition, sustainability, and cooking techniques and recipes.
When the salmon was unpacked from the box to my refrigerator, some rearranging was necessary so that the fish would fit! I put the pear in the photo to provide a relative measure. It was so beautifully pink, just barely thawed, with firm flesh, and skin still intact on the underside.
I baked it very simply, with a sprinkle of Fox Point dried spice mix (Penzey’s) on top. Amazingly delicious.
Thanks to Christine and to Alaska Seafood!
