Sockeye salmon fresh from Homer, AK

edited August 2014 in EggHead Forum
I recently was gifted some Sockeye salmon caught by my fathers life long friend and classmate, Dr Joseph Meyer. 

The fish: Salt, pepper, and a very light dusting of Dizzy Pig Shaking the Tree. 

The sauce: Lightly brown some shallot, add caper and crushed garlic. Just before serving, stir the mix with a cold stick of salted butter until it melts and mixes. Mix in the juice of two lemons and the zest from the same two fruit. 


Grill indirect until the fish reaches 140 internal temp. Serve with rice or couscous and asparagus.

  • That looks great!!

    I did something similar tonight. Fresh dill and lemon on top and grilled the salmon on a cedar plank. This is a HUGE winner at my house.

    Alaska is AK. Arkansas is AR. Alaska is mostly bordered by salt water. In fact, some say you can see Russia from there.

    The fish processing plant in Homer is a remarkable place.  We caught some great salmon and halibut there a few years ago.  It still tasted great a year later after they vacuum froze it straight off the boat.

    Catching halibut there is more like harvesting than fishing if you go to the right spot.

  • Course salt and fresh dill seasoning is simply delicious. Grill on cedar plank until the milky looking fats rise to the surface. Sockeye from Kenai River

    A local up here told me Alaska is the last refuge of the incompetent... My experience is overwhelmingly, everyone is super friendly, cheerful and helpful.

    Alaska is the only place I have ever been where the food portions are bigger than they are in Texas.

    Dude looks awesome!!! Man the kid is getting big!!!

    Looks like in a few years he will need his own mini and start cooking. Consider it a grown up version of an east bake oven.

    Funny. I just thought it was some kind of Canadian insider joke? I was just waiting until somebody else said something.

    Looks excellent my friend. And you are correct brother strick. I worked 23 miles just north of Prudhoe Bay Alaska on a man made island that Royal Dutch /Shell Oil built for gas extraction. It was on the border of where the Beaufort sea and the Arctic ocean came together. On a clear day you could easily see the land mass of Russia with no visual aid. Again your grub looks excellent my friend.

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.
