We’re pretty landlocked when we’re up north, so finding a reliable source of great seafood is truly exciting. It’s even better when you’re purchasing directly from an Alaskan fisherman.
Not only is their fish fresh, it bears the name of the vessel that caught it. Even their packaging is sustainable. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Pan-Roasted Sesame Salmon
Main Dish, Seafood
4 scallions, whites and greens separated
1 clove garlic, grated
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, plus more for garnish, toasted
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon mirin
1 ¼ pounds skin-on salmon fillet, cut into 4 portions
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon canola or grapeseed oil
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Finely chop scallion whites and place in a small bowl (chop and reserve greens for garnish). Add garlic, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds, honey and mirin and stir to combine.
Pat salmon dry and sprinkle with salt. Heat canola (or grapeseed) oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the salmon, skin-side up, and cook until the underside is browned and releases easily from the pan, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the salmon and spoon the sauce over the top.
Transfer the pan to the oven and bake until the salmon flakes easily with a fork, 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle the salmon with scallion greens and more sesame seeds, if desired.
