Salmon and Halibut .:Giveaway:.

There are many things I love about living in Alaska. We have an abundance of beautiful scenery



room to move (and then some)





plentiful wild foods, both flora



and fauna,



and 20 hours of daylight in the summer.




Of course on the flip side there are 40˚ below zero nights that last 20 hours,

6 months of snow



and parcel post can take 3-4 weeks to get here.


Mail and delivery seem to be a problem even when I'm doing a giveaway. Anderson Seafoods wanted to set up a review and giveaway with me, except they don't deliver to Alaska. Something about length of delivery time, time is of the essences sort of thing. I guess that makes sense when you want to provide the best, freshest seafood to your customers. Boo for me! But being the ever resourceful blogger that I am I worked around their limitations and figured out how to make it work for you.

I get to eat salmon and halibut just about weekly, so I know how delicious it is, do you? Want a chance to try some? I'm giving away Alaskan Sockeye Salmon and Alaskan Halibut, here's how you can win.
  1. pop over to Anderson Seafoods and check them out, leave a comment letting me know your favorite kind of seafood
  2. become a follower for an extra entry or if you are a follower leave me a comment
  3. blog roll Hey What's for Dinner Mom? for one more entry
This giveaway runs until May 31st and the winner will be announced on June 1st and is open to residents of the continental United States. Good Luck!

I received no compensation for this giveaway, the prize has been provided by Anderson Seafood.

Peace and Love-

  1. My favorite seafood is shrimp, but from our coast, Maine shrimp is tops! But I did love the salmon in Alaska when I lived there!

  3. When I see posts like this it always makes me wonder what it would be like to live outside NYC.

    My favorite kind was the yellow tail tuna I caught while on my honeymoon. Nothing fresher and we ate it raw (sashimi style) on the boat!

  4. I love seafood so narrowing it down to my favorite is tough. However, I'm going to have to go with a well cooked Sea Scallop. Just seared on the outside and lightly warm throughout. Yum...

  5. My grandfather came over to the US from Russia. He used to make caviar in the bathtub (kind of gross now that I think about it) but while some kids ate applesauce, I enjoyed caviar and still love the stuff. When are you next coming down to CA?

  13. I am a follower and hoping to win some BEAUTIFUL looking fish from your state. I could only be there for the summers, the winter would find me in deep, dark depression. My dream home is somewhere like Hawaii or Tahiti, so while Alaska is visually beautiful, the winters would wear me out.

  14. What seafood don't I love? The fish looks so beautiful at Anderson's site, too. What would I choose? Hmm...I guess I would pick the Halibut. I love it and good Halibut is delicious.
