Bri Dwyer is often presented as the wife of Sean Dwyer, captain of the Bering Sea and “Deadliest Catch”. But she’s also a photographer who frequents Alaskan fishing boats, including those in the family fleet that also fish for Alaskan salmon in the Southeast and Bristol Bay.
NF sat down to chat with Bri about how she got into the industry, as well as her favorite tips for cooking Alaskan seafood at home and on the boat. Bri and Sean also partnered with the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute to provide a seafood box giveaway as part of ASMI. #AlaskaSeafoodHacks countryside.
“We asked our followers on Instagram to share their favorite cooking method for Alaskan seafood to sort of find out the best seafood hacks along with some of their favorite seafood recipes or dishes. ‘Alaska favorites,'” Bri Dwyer told NF. “We are giving away two boxes of seafood worth $400. They will be shipped directly to their front door. And it’s a great way to get Alaskan seafood in your freezers.
She shared some of her favorite submissions for the seafood hacks giveaway.
“They told me how you make vodka butter and then that’s what you dip the crab in,” Dwyer told NF. “Lots of marinated fish. It’s not something I’ve explored yet, but I know it’s very popular.
Dwyer also talked about the seasonality of cooking Alaskan seafood, even when you take it out of the freezer.
“Spring is when we really start to stock up on our seafood. And start to sort of change because we’ve depleted all of our salmon stock and so we’re waiting for more. But now we have crab, halibut and shrimp. And so we have the spring to get through that before we stock up on salmon.
