Potlach Salmon


Potlatch refers to an abundant ceremonial feast of Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest. Roughly translated, “potlatch” means a feast of giving, and they were often held to resolve conflicts within tribes. These celebrations were common in the winter when ingredients had been dried out and perfect for seasoning salmon, a cornerstone in Native American cooking. This recipe creates a unique flavor profile, while honoring the traditional way the Indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest would season, celebrate, and enjoy salmon.
