I really want to motivate to make a trip to Alaska this summer and I am lucky enough to have an amazing aunt who lives there thus making the dream a little bit more possible!! I mean hiking, bald eagles, glacier viewing, followed by picking some wild strawberries and blueberries to head home and have some family time and make a HUGE lemon curd and berry tart sounds amazing to me. As does jumping on a fishing boat, catching some halibut and some Alaskan king crab while hopefully your boat is surrounded by whales like it was the last time I was there.
|Would love to catch some King Crab like this and have a boat that comes with a dog :)|
If I go and If i can muster the motivation to get on a fishing boat at 3 am when the halibut are feeding I hope I could catch something to cook up. If so, I would prepare the halibut with a simple preparation I learned from my German roommate. Pan roasted with blanched and pealed almonds, a simple wine, shallot and butter sauce and a bit of lemon. Recipe to come...
I wonder how much a Paris-Alaska ticket would be?! Hmmmmm....
|I mean don't you kind of want to be on this boat?|
|And hiking here looks perfect|

I'd listen to this little track from talking heads the whole plane ride over and while sizzling up the fish and quickly boiling the crab.
