Recipe by Suzy Sakamoto, The Perfect Tide
Serves: 10-12

Fish from Alaska Gold Standard Seafood Variety Pack:
2 portions of wild Alaska halibut
2 portions of wild Alaska coho salmon
2 portions of sablefish/black cod
2 portions of lingcod (or 1 rockfish filet 12-16 oz)
Optional: 1 lb of Alaska Gold Smoked Salmon to garnish
1 lb of bacon, chopped
8 cups of diced red potatoes
4 cups of diced sweet potatoes
4 cups of mini peppers, cut into rings
3 cups of frozen corn
2 large diced yellow onions
1 qt of seafood stock
1 qt of water
2.5 cups of dry white wine
2 cups of whole milk
1.5 cups of heavy cream
14 minced garlic cloves
3 tbsp of Old Bay or seafood boil seasoning
1 tbsp of dried thyme
Salt to taste

Cut the fillets into 1-inch cubes and set them in a bowl in the fridge to keep cool.
In a large pot, cook bacon on med-high heat until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Remove bacon drippings, leaving about 2 tablespoons in the pot. Stir in onions, thyme, old bay, and garlic, and cook for 5 minutes while stirring occasionally.
Add wine, stock, and water, and allow to come to a boil while stirring.
Add potatoes and sweet potatoes, and cook with the lid off until just about fork tender but not fully cooked, roughly 10-15 minutes.
Add peppers, cream, and milk, and cook for 5 minutes.
While the pot is at a boil, stir in the fish, bacon, and corn and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes. Add salt to taste.
Serve in bowls and garnish with Alaska Gold Smoked Salmon.
