Sara’s Weeknight Meals: Season 11

Episode 1101: Alaska Salmon Two Ways

The incredible natural resources of Alaska are on the menu as I travel to Juneau to learn how locals are harvesting wild and foraged food and becoming culinary entrepreneurs.  I talk to a fish biologist about the incredible journey wild salmon makes to return to their home streams.  Then I  learn the traditional way to make Cedar Planked Salmon with an Alaska Native home cook. On the side, foraged Sea Asparagus.  Back home I demonstrate an easy recipe that can be applied to any fish – Salmon Baked in a Bag with Citrus, Olives and Chiles, served with Borscht Beets.
