How do you #CookWild?

Alaska seafood is the premier wild, responsibly sourced, flavor-packed ingredient that can easily be the star of your plate.

As Alaska is the sustainable source of 60% of our nation’s wild seafood, cooking wild is an attitude and belief that Alaska seafood experts and fishermen know better than anyone else. With a bounty of options and easy tips, you can live the Cook Wild ethos too.
