Different species of salmon thrive mostly in freshwater lakes. Because of its abundance, smoked salmon has been a huge part of Alaska’s daily cuisine. From a simple picnic sandwich to a fancy smoked dish with herb risotto, this meat is indeed versatile. 

Smoked salmons exude a light umami flavor. As soon as you cut through its skin, you’ll be enticed by the subtle orange to deep red pigmented flesh.

Taste Alaska in this local delicacy as you roam around the whimsical travel lands tasting it in its many forms and variations.
