I am so excited, will be in Anchorage starting the 22nd of March after a week on the Ferry. Before I start work at ALaska Regional I would like to have a great seafood meal that hopefully does not cost an arm and a leg. Where is the best place in the Anchorage area to have Salmon and or King Crab? Mmmmm makes my mouth water to think about either one!

What about a place to buy and prepare it at home? Where should I go?

New Sagiya (saa-guy-ya) in Anchorage. Although I don't know the address. Or maybe one of the bigger grocery stores. They usually have both at Carrs/Safeway or the Fred Meyer grocery.
I'll bet someone here from the Anchorage area can tell you better.
Oh and welcome to the great land!

Default New Sagiya all the way.

Definitely New Sagiya. We bought like 15 pounds of red king crab for about $8.00 a pound. The only problem is the crab is pretty seasonal. They also have really good shrimp. I have never bought salmon or halibut from there though.

I think there is a New Sagiya off the old seward highway, across from that mall? (Dang I hate when I can't remember names)

And if dining out...probably any decent restraunt in Anchorage serves both. The Outback or Sea Galley? Some places in the google ads in between posts!

Oh man I was starting to drool reading this stuff. The closest I can get to the real thing is some flash frozen vacuum sealed Copper River Salmon at the local Trader Joe's store here in Southern Cal for $9 a pound. I just had some tonight and it's pretty darn good, but nothing like what you get in coastal AK. How was Bering Sea crab season this year? Of course we all experts on that topic now down here because we've seen 3 or maybe 4 episodes of Deadliest Catch on Discovery Channel.

I've already gone through a 20 pound box in 3 months. And it was damn good. I have a connection in Dutch Harbor that sends me a box fairly fresh from the boat/processor. It still costs 10 bucks a pound...but you just can't get them big ol legs any fresher.

Rance,

Would you mind sharing your source for the 20 pound boxes of King crab legs? How do you cook them? Sounds like a great deal to me!

Ohh, forgot to ask, when is the Salmon fishing season? Is it difficult/expensive to get a license for those of us that are not a state resident? Is it better to go ocean fishing for salmon or can you do it in the rivers? Nothing better than fresh salmon or even fresh trout. MMM... bringing my pole, ready to start!

I usually place legs on a cookie sheet. Add some water (1/4 inch) put in oven on 500 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes and call it good. Some kinda boil them in salt water. I don't think it matters. Oh and no...I cannot give you my connection in Dutch Harbor. It took me years to get it...and you will have to earn your connection as I did...grasshpper!
