This week I am doing marketing work for Between Beaches Alaska, which is a remote vacation cabin and glamping tent rental company! Such a great place, and I love that you can only get here by boat or plane. There is SO much to share, one of the things being how we are doing our food because you have to bring your groceries with you (too remote for a store)! Later we found out you can buy fish from Between Beaches, which is great!!
We ended up fitting our groceries in our luggage and only spending $60 for the week, which is really good considering how food is more expensive up here. I will share more about what we are doing for breakfast, lunch & dinner, but for now I'll start with dinner- which came to $5 for two of us!
I was sitting next to Micah on the beach last night, eating this Salmon Bowl that we had just created. I told him, "Crazy thought to think that this dinner started with us spotting jumpers, haha! catching the fish, filleting it, buying local veggies and salt, and then creating this ourselves." The thought was so satisfying, making this one of the best dinners of our lives.
Wild Alaskan Salmon Bowl
2 lbs Salmon
1 cup raw quinoa
1 T fresh ginger
4 cloves garlic
1 t Spit Salt (from Alaska Salt Co)
1 red bell pepper
2 cups spinach
2 cups kale
1 T Olive oil
Put salmon skin side down in foil. Season with salt and pepper. Add chopped garlic, ginger, onions & red pepper on top. Drizzle with olive oil & soy sauce. Add 2 T water under the fish (to make steam) cover with foil and BBQ for 20 min. While that cooks mix 1 cup raw quinoa with 2 cups water and simmer for about 20 min- or until fluffy. Mix hot quinoa with the spinach and kale so it wilts the greens. Break up the cooked salmon and veggies and add to the quinoa & greens mixture. Add more salt and soy sauce to taste and you’re done!! Enjoy with a waterfront view at Between Beaches Alaska!
