Marinated Sockeye Salmon with Crispy Shallots and Capers

Marinated Sockeye Salmon with Crispy Shallots and Capers by Chef Therese Gorsich

Here at Alaska Sea Adventures, we have long known that food is an important component in leisure travel and that regional foods bring a destination to life and create delicious travel memories that stay with guests for decades.

That’s why we place a high priority on the meals served aboard the Northern Song. Our fully equipped state of the art kitchen with its open floor plan is the stage upon which our on board highly trained Chef crafts extraordinary meals using the highest quality local wild Alaska seafood, fresh vegetables, foraged wild berries, and so much more.

Whether Chef is filleting salmon, rolling pastry, kneading bread, or simmering a sauce, our guests relish the process and often ask for recipes and tips on how to bring Alaska’s flavors home with them. That is why we are pleased to introduce our new Food and Recipe page where our guests can access some of our Chef’s favorite recipes! Each recipe has PDF link at the bottom for ease of printing.
