My Tiny Alaskan Oven

By LaDonna Gunderson


LaDonna Gundersen has spent every summer for the past two decades working side by side with her husband Ole on the LaDonna Rose their 32-foot commercial salmon fishing boat in Southeast Alaska. The tiny oven of the title refers to the 18” x 21” diesel oil oven on the boat. When at sea, LaDonna refuses to serve ‘heat and eat’ pre-prepared meals. Over the years she’s developed a repertoire of quick-to-fix recipes using easy-to-find ingredients that don’t sacrifice flavor. These form the basis of her cookbooks.

The two must haves of all her recipes are: a short ingredient list and minimal prep time. The recipes in My Tiny Alaskan Oven were specifically created to be made with minimal equipment, easy-to-find ingredients and be a breeze to clean up afterwards. The one thing they are not is boring. You’ll find scrumptious, inventive dishes such as Bacon Wrapped Halibut, Seared Scallops with Teriyaki Salad, Pumpkin Doughnuts, Grilled Lamb Chops with Blueberry Rosemary Sauce and Coconut Shrimp with Green Goddess Dip.

My Tiny Alaskan Oven is also more than just a cookbook. It’s a travelogue and with lively stories about Alaska and the commercial fishing lifestyle accompanied by gorgeous full-color photographs taken by husband Ole of the dishes, fishing and Alaskan scenery.
