This picture was taken and sent to us by a crewmember aboard the 356 foot fish processing boat, Independence.  In this photo, our little lobster friend in the foreground (who has become accustomed to being the center of attention) was upstaged by the beauty of Akutan, Alaska, located in the eastern Aleutian Islands.

Sesame Noodles with Beef 300 PX Wide_0.JPG


O.K., maybe this should be called BEEF with a few noodles.  Our intent was to share a nice Sesame Noodle recipe, but we got such a good deal on London Broil that we got carried away and the noodles were kind of lost in the shuffle.

It's a really fun dish and it serves well with fish, chicken, pork or garden fresh vegetables. It's easy to make and really inexpensive.

1 lb wheat angel hair pasta/ 1 cup sesame oil/ 1/2 cup soy sauce/ 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar/ 1/4 cup white sugar/ 1 tablespoon hot chili oil/ 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds/ 1 bunch broccoli/ 1 red pepper/ 1 summer squash/ 2-3 scallion stalks/ 1 lb (or more) of london broil.


1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a boil over high heat.  Once the water is boiling, stir in angel hair, and return to a boil.  Cook uncovered, stirring
occasionally, until pasta is firm.(4-5 min.) Drain and set aside.

2. Grill (or broil) london broil to preferred temp, slice and set aside.                               
3. Chop broccoli into florets, slice peppers & squash and dice scallions. Saute in 1/4 cup of sesame oil and toss with angel hair.
