Seviche and Fish Eye Pudding
Seviche (also spelled ceviche, or cebiche) contains seafood and "fish eye" pudding does not. They are both delicious, have interesting visual appeal and are extraordinarily fun to eat. Popular in Latin and South American cuisines, trendy seviche has also become a favorite in our country, and is appearing as an appetizer option on more and more restaurant menus. Because seviche is comprised of raw seafood that is "cooked" only by means of a soaking in a citrus juice marinade, it is vital that the seafood for this dish be of the best quality. If you plan to prepare seviche at home, keep in mind that seviche will take several hours of marinating before it is ready to eat.

King salmon need more prudent management
Most locals are aware that our first run of Kenai kings (commonly called the early run) has been less than stellar this year as well as the past few yeas. I've only lived here about 20 years, but even I remember when we had healthy ER king numbers and good fishing in May and June. In addition to the poor returns lately, many would agree that some of our ADF&G's recent decisions have been "questionable" for lack of a better term!

Volunteers boost Ninilchik Senior Center
Some very energetic and dedicated seniors held this benefit fundraiser barbecue and Biggest Clam Contest for the Ninichik Senior Center. A huge gazebo style greenhouse was made available by Alaska Greenhouse for the event at the corner of Kingsley Road and the Sterling Highway. For two full days June 12 and 13, Texas style brisket, Kentucky style pulled-pork, and Alaskan deep fried Halibut were served with enthusiasm. Home baked deserts were donated and vendors sold their wares. A 6 and 5/8ths inch clam took the $50 dollar prize which was kindly donated back. Over $7,500 was generated and donated to the Senior Center!
