Summer is a time for great fishing and hunting. Prince of Wales Island in southeast Alaska swells with tourists all hoping to catch the “big one.” To add to the sublime Alaska experience, lodges bring in professionally trained chefs who use local fresh seafood and ingredients to work their magic.

Starting in mid-June, one local fishing lodge opens their doors to the public every night for dinner. Shelter Cove Lodge’s restaurant, Latitude 55 North, is a treasure we found in our own backyard. This year, Executive Chef Neil Massaro is working his handcrafted magic for a 10 out of 10 dining experience.

Our dinner began with a superb French onion soup and salad of local baby greens and vinaigrette dressing. My wife had pan-roasted halibut in a coconut cream sauce with herb-crusted potatoes and baby broccoli steamed to perfection. For dessert, she ordered the flourless chocolate torte with white chocolate “soup” and handmade raspberry/chipotle ice cream that was an explosion of flavor.

I had salmon seared with shallots in a lemon and vodka dill sauce over homemade pasta. All I can say is WOW! For dessert, I had a chocolate torte with raisin rum ice cream. Every component of our meal came together with complexity, texture, and notes of genius: a true a gastronomic orgasm.

If you are ever on the island and looking for a great, all-around adventure, try the Shelter Cove Lodge. Fish all day with experienced guides and then eat like a king or queen.
