Swiss 'n' Crab Supper Pie
Though some parts of Alaska are suitable for farming, we're on the Gulf, where commercial fishing is the main industry. Crab is plentiful here, and so is salmon, halibut, shrimp and sea herring.
You don't need fresh crab for this delicious, easy-to-make supper pie, though-with canned crabmeat, it becomes a great "off-the-shelf" meal. Hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does!
