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

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.  
    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
