Alaskan halibut and salmon dinner

8 posts in this topic

Just returned from a nice dinner party featuring a grilled Alaskan halibut and salmon dinner. Two of my fishing buds took their 2 oldest boys on a trip of a lifetime to Alaska and shared their reward with us.

What a meal! Nice salads, great grilled fish and wonderful company. To make it even nicer it was outdoors on this beautiful evening that has the promise of fall in the air.

Why is it that food always tastes better outdoors?

My parents just moved up to anchorage this summer, and they repayed me helping them move boxes for two weeks by taking me out fishing!

I have to say, Alaska is one of those truly incredible places. And oh MAN what incredible fishing!

Just got back from 10 days spread out between Homer, Seward, Soldotna and the last night in Anchorage before flying out. 1st time up there and all I can say is...Well words can't describe it. Pounded Silver's and Pink's on the Kenai River (only kept the silvers), then Silver's on a fly out then Halibut. My wife and I brought back close to 50lbs of fish each. Now to study up on some Halibut/Salmon recipe's.

Anyway you cook Halibut is a treat. Try the cedar plank trick for salmon mmmmmm.

Another simple trick for salmon on the grill is mix equal parts mustard and mayo and spread liberally on each side of fillet. Doesn't impart any taste, but keeps it from sticking to the grill. Put some fresh lemon slices on those bad boys and dig in!

I just got back from the Kenia on Saturday night. It was my 3rd trip in as many years. Spent time fishing halibut out of Seward and Ninilchek. Slammed pinks and Silvers (coho) on the lower Kenia near Soldotna. Fish on cast after cast. We had some silvers in the 12 to 15 pound class. Pounded Reds (sockeye salmon) up on the middle Kenia and Russian River. I brought back about 70 pounds of fish. There are lots of people who have Minnesota roots that live up there. I also ran into several people from the Duluth/Iron Range area who were slammin the fish.

Try frying up some halibut in 1 inch squares and make some fish tacos. MMMMMMMMMM Good.

Here is a must try recipe for salmon.

Two cloves of Garlic, Minced

One small onion, minced

i/3 cup Maple syrup

1/3 cup Apple juice

2 tablespoons of Soy sauce

Mix the above together and marinate the Salmon with it for a couple hours. Either cook it on the grill or broil in the oven skin side down. It is fabulas

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
