Winners for the 2015 SWAP Meat for Alaska Professional Chef Recipe Contest
1ST place Winner $2,500 Prize
Alaska Salmon Osso Buco
by Chef Adam Hegstad,
Wandering Table, Spokane, WA
“We always try to push ourselves to reinvent traditional items and put different flavors together, so the Swap Meat Recipe Contest was a perfect fit,” said Chef Hegsted. “I have always preferred Alaska seafood and the salmon lends itself well to this dish with more fat for braising. It looks like a typical Osso Buco but, when you bite into it, you are positively surprised.”
He is currently serving the Alaska Salmon Osso Buco during special chef’s tastings at his restaurant and plans to add it to the restaurant menu this fall.
Hegsted received his culinary education at the Seattle Institute of Art and has won many regional and national awards. He grew up in the Pacific Northwest and his specialty is local game, wild fruits, vegetables and locally-grown produce.
