Alaskan Salmon with a Kick

Chefs around the world love to use local ingredients to produce fantastic meals.  Alaskan chefs are no different.  And what's the one food that seems to go hand-in-hand with thoughts of Alaska?  Why Alaskan Salmon, of course!  While Alaska Bed and Breakfast Association member innkeepers may not have Salmon on the breakfast menu (although some do), we do have some favorite preparations of this amazingly rich meat.

In the spirit of friendship and a full stomach for all, we would like to share one of our favorite Alaskan Salmon recipes with current and potential guests of our Alaska inns!  We hope you enjoy this version of one of our state's major food staples!
