The Symphony of Seafood is an annual seafood tasting event and gala sponsored by the Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation. It is great fun and the evening event is a super opportunity to see, touch and taste new fish and seafoods coming to market.
This year, I had the honor of being a judge on the tasting panel. There are 3 food categories.
The Winners Are…….
Smoked foods: Kylee’s Alaskan Salmon Bacon (this was one of my favorites; nice color, texture, taste and nutrient profile)
Retail: AquaCuisine Naturally Smoked Salmon Frank
Foodservice: Sweet Potato Crunch Alaska Pollock Sticks
Other products of note were a fish patty wrapped in whole brown rice by Louvier’s and the pickled salmon and cod by Pickled Willy’s are perfect to eat for a healthy (high protein, low fat) snack on a cracker, perhaps with some cheese or celery. Pickled Willy’s products come in a jar; keep them in the fridge to serve as an impromptu appetizer for those guests who drop by…..
I am looking forward to the salmon bacon on a BLT!
