Top 5 Wild Alaska Seafood Recipes for the New Year

Happy 2018! After overindulging on holiday treats, we're looking forward to getting back on track in the new year. Since eating healthier is one of the top New Year's resolutions out there, here are our current favorite wild Alaska seafood recipes to get you started out on the right track. Not only do these meals taste incredible, but you'll also feel great after enjoying them, thanks to the loads of Omega-3s in wild salmon, cod, and halibut. 

1. Salmon Roasted in Butter and Herbs 

We've shared this recipe a million times, and it's because we can't get over how good it turns out every single time. It's super simple. Yes, there's a lot of butter here, but we use Kerrygold Irish Butter or good organic stuff, so we're not too worried about it. Skip drizzling the butter on top at the end if you'd like a dish that isn't so rich. It still turns out great! We typically use a blend of dill, oregano, thyme, and basil because that's what we grew in our garden this year. Experiment with other herbs, or sub your favorite seafood seasoning. 

2. Halibut or Cod Tacos with Cilantro Savoy Slaw

We eat a ton of tacos and this recipe is our go-to. Sent to us by the daughter of a lifelong cod fisherman, you know it's good. We always sub yogurt for sour cream. Our skinless cod pieces are perfect for these tasty tacos!

3. Thai Curry Noodle Soup with Halibut or Cod 

We used to be addicted to our recipe for Red Curry Salmon Chowder, but this recipe for Thai Curry Noodle Soup with Halibut by Alaska from Scratch is our new fave. It's spicy, but can be milder if you use green or yellow curry paste instead of red. Alaska From Scratch is one of our favorite blogs and its creator, Maya, has a cookbook coming out in February. Preorder it HERE. Order our wild Alaska cod while it's still in stock! 

4. Salmon Salad Sandwich 

A staple in the O'Laire house. We make salmon salad at least once a week. Make it just like a tuna fish sandwich, but use your leftover salmon. Or, try our sockeye salmon stir fry pieces- they're perfect and economical, plus they're skinless and boneless. Our recipe tends to vary, but it's something like: 

  • 8 oz. skinless, boneless salmon 
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (we make homemade mayo, since we have tons of eggs from our chickens. I like THIS recipe)
  • 1 tbsp. capers
  • 1 tsp. mustard 
  • pinch of salt and pepper

Add pickles, lettuce, and tomato on whole wheat toast. We like ours open-faced. 

5. Salmon Burgers

If you haven't given salmon burgers a try, you must. They're satisfying and simple. These hearty Salmon Burgers with Cilantro Mayo are so tasty, you won't even miss the beef! You can use our regular sockeye salmon, or our salmon stir fry, or salmon burger. Our stir fry and burger already have the skin removed.
