The Salmon Sisters: Harvest & Heritage: Seasonal Recipes and Traditions that Celebrate the Alaskan Spirit is a great cookbook featuring not only recipes for seafood, but also recipes for side dishes, desserts, salads, etc., using indigenous ingredients from Alaska. The recipes are varied, and unexpected, such as Shrimp and Crab Gumbo (the Cajun’s share a love of seafood with Alaska), Sautéed Fiddleheads with Pine Nuts, Lemon, and Oregano, and Miso Salmon and Soba Salad Bowl. There is also a mouthwatering recipe for halibut tacos.
The recipes are easy to follow. They are written in the traditional form and can be understood by both advanced and beginning cooks. The ingredients for some of the recipes are not easy to find (many things that grow in Alaska don’t grown in readers’ areas, but there are enough recipes with ingredients that are readily available that will appeal to almost everyone. Some of the recipes even call for canned seafood.
The cookbook is well-written, and the stories and vignettes are fun to read. Readers will be tempted to curl up in a corner and read this cover to cover. There are also beautiful, professional photographs of not only Alaska, but also most of the dishes.
All told, this is a unique cookbook that will make a good addition to a cookbook collection. Many of the recipes are appealing and some will even become favorites.
