Overview

"I loved this book-the thrill, romance, and danger of fishing in Alaska, and recipes that celebrate the region's bounty. Cheers to these courageous women for showing us what we can do." - Christine Keff, award-winning chef of the Flying Fish Restaurant, Seattle

"This cookbook is an extraordinary brew of suprer-tasty recipes, fashion tips, cool art, photos, great fishing stories, and a cocktail or two mixed in. Surely Fishes & Dishes will become a culinary classic." - Ray Troll, author-illustrator of Ray Troll's Shocking Fish Tales

A generation ago, the women featured in this book might have been celebrated as pioneers. In today's world, they are simply living their dreams and challenging one of the last frontiers - the male-dominated commercial fishing grounds of Alaska. They have worked every job, from captian to cook, and nearly every northern fishery, even the Beriing Sea king crab grounds made infamous by TV's Deadliest Catch. 

Their tantalizing recipes for a full day of meals include Corn Cakes with Shrimp, Avocado and Tomato; Salmon Dumplings with Coconut Curry Suace; Thai Clam Chorder; Halibut Cheeks Picatta; Linguine with Mussels and Cider, Bacon, and Shallot Cream Sauce; and Crab, Shiso, and Avocado Tempura Salad. An don't forget to try one of their libations from the Northland, a Dark and Stormy - dark rum and ginger beer, over ice, with a lemon twist.
