Pepper-Honey Cedar Plank Salmon

Rating: 4.74 stars
I live in Alaska and have 3 sons that love to fish. I have had to come up with some pretty creative ways to prepare salmon, this is by far my family and friends favorite way to eat fresh salmon. I soak an untreated cedar plank in water and bourbon while they are out fishing for the day and fix the barbeque sauce so that's it is ready to get grilling.....

Easy Rhubarb Crisp

Rating: 4.53 stars
Growing up in Alaska, we had rhubarb growing out of our ears. This recipe is a great way to use it, and people will devour it.

Slow Cooker Venison Sloppy Joes
Rating: Unrated
This recipe comes from my friend who is a guide in Alaska - it's excellent for sandwiches, on rolls with sharp Cheddar cheese. Yum yum! Slow cooked in a slow cooker so even the toughest of roasts or stew meats will work; eventually the meat just falls apart! Also good served over hot cooked rice. Delicious!

Rating: 4.71 stars

After having to put up with the so-called 'sweet and sour sauce' that they serve in American Asian restaurants (theirs are only sweet), I got this recipe from a friend in Alaska when I was stationed up there years ago.
