Alaskan Recipes

This section is devoted to my dear friends Brenda and Jim, and my newly found friends Dori and Ed who live in this beautiful state.

Alaska became our 49th state on January 3, 1959. Alaska adopted the flag for offical state use in 1959. The blue field represents the sky, the sea, and mountain lakes, as well as Alaska's wildflowers. Beblazoned on the flag are 8 gold stars; seven from the constellation Ursa Major, or the Big Dipper. The eighth being the North Star, representing the northern most state. Alaska's flag was designed in 1926 by a 13-year-old Native American boy, Bennie Benson, from the village of Chignik. Bennie received a 1,000 dollar scholarship and a watch for his winning entry in the flag design contest.

The origin of the state's name is based on an Aleut word "alaxsxag" literally meaning "object toward which the action of the sea is directed," or more simply "the mainland".


Perhaps you'd prefer a moist, sizzling fillet of Alaska Salmon hot off the grill. Or the succulent, firm texture of Alaska King Crab. Or maybe the light, delicate flavor of Alaska Halibut strikes your fancy. So...what are you waiting for? This is where you will find many mouth-watering recipes. From quick and easy entrées to gourmet. I invite you to savor the tastes of Alaska....Enjoy!
