Alaska: Yummy Seafood Database


Today’s State Agency Database highlight is from my home state of Alaska:

Alaska Seafood Recipes – Searchable set of recipes utilizing salmon, halibut, crab and other Alaskan seafood. Maybe searched by type of dish (appetizer, salad, entree, etc), Seafood type, and consumer/food service.

Choosing smoked salmon, entree and consumer produced eight recipes, including this one:



Serves: 4

Prep Time: 15

8 oz. dried egg fettuccini

4 oz. asparagus (about 1-1/2 cups), trimmed and cut into 1- to 2-inch pieces

2 oz. sliced mushrooms (about 1 cup)

2 Tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 cup half-and-half

1 cup shredded Asiago or Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup chicken broth

6 to 8 oz. Alaska Smoked Salmon, chunked

Salt and crushed red pepper flakes, to taste

Cook pasta in a pot of boiling salted water according to package directions, adding asparagus during the last 3 minutes of cooking time and mushrooms during the last 2 minutes; drain.

While pasta is cooking, melt butter in a large pan. Add garlic; cook and stir 1 minute over medium heat. Reduce heat to low. Stir in half-and-half and cheese until melted. Stir in broth and Alaska Smoked Salmon; heat through. Season to taste with salt and red pepper flakes, if desired. Pour sauce over pasta to serve.
