The Salmon Sisters
Feasting, Fishing, and Living in Alaska: A Cookbook with 50 Recipes
Introducing Alaska's answer to the Pioneer Woman: Two sisters share their remarkable life story as fisherwomen of the Aleutian Islands--plus 50 sustainable seafood recipes that honor the beauty of wild foods.
Share in the remarkable and wild lives of Emma Teal Laukitis and Claire Neaton, the Salmon Sisters, who grew up on a homestead in the Aleutians where the family ran a commercial fishing boat in the Alaskan sea. Their book reveals through stories, recipes, and photography this outward-bound lifestyle of natural bounty, the honest work on a boat's deck, and the wholesome food that comes from local waters and land.
Here are creative and simple ways to enjoy wild salmon, halibut, and spot prawns, as well as simple crafts and ideas for exploring the natural world. The sisters are committed to sustaining and celebrating the seafaring community in Alaska, and their business of selling products related to and from the ocean donates a can of wild-caught fish to local food banks for each item purchased.
"To flip through the pages of Emma Teal Laukities's and Claire Neaton's new cookbook . . . is to be whisked away on an adventure in the country's northernmost state."
