By Emma Teal Laukitis and Claire Neaton
2020 • Sasquatch Books
The bright and inspiring life and work story from a pair of sisters who are Alaskan fisherwomen, along with fifty hearty and comforting recipes that honor wild foods from the sea and the shore.
Share in the remarkable and wild lives of Emma Teal Laukitis and Claire Neaton, the Salmon Sisters, who grew up on a homestead in the Aleutians where the family ran a commercial fishing boat in the Alaskan sea. Their book reveals this outward-bound lifestyle of natural bounty, the honest work on a boat's deck, and the wholesome food that comes from local waters and land. Here are creative and simple ways to enjoy wild salmon, halibut, and spot prawns. The sisters are committed to sustaining and celebrating the seafaring community in Alaska, and their business of selling products related to and from the ocean donates a can of wild-caught fish to local food banks for each item purchased.
