Her photo of home-canned Alaska salmon impressed the ASMI board and committee members, whovoted on the winner from a group of 3 finalists that had been selected from over 100 entries. As the winner, Squarstoff will take home a winter’s worth of Alaska seafood and a GoPro Hero camera.

Born and raised on Kodiak Island, Squarstoff is an artist and chef at the Kodiak Paradise Lodge in Port Lions, Alaska.  As a Native Alaskan from a commercial fishing family, she has a passion for seafood and draws inspiration from Alaska waters. “Most of my protein comes from the sea. When I cook, it’s fresh—a lot of my dishes are under 10 ingredients. I like to keep my food geared to my heritage and lifestyle,” Squarstoff said.

ASMI launched the contest during October to celebrate National Seafood Month. Alaska seafood fans can connect with ASMI on Instragram by following @alaskaseafood and tagging photos with #alaskaseafood.
