Writer, Alaskan and chef Kim Sunée got a chance to appear on a national stage as a guest on the Today Show on Wednesday morning.

She was one of 52 chefs form across the country representing each state (plus Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico) on the Today Show for its United Plates of Thanksgiving celebration.

The Today Show describes the series as a sort of homage to each state.

"From tropical fruit in Hawaii to fresh seafood in New England, and barbecue in the South to the hearty dishes of the Midwest, the flavors of the United States know no bounds — and that's especially apparent on Thanksgiving," the show's website says.

Sunée brought seafood to highlight Alaska: scallops and salmon. She was the second guest on the program and Hoda Kotb quizzed her on how to prepare frozen salmon for Thanksgiving.

"Seafood for Thanksgiving?" Kotb asked.

"Yes, it'll lighten things up," Sunée responded.

"Take your (frozen) wild Alaska salmon, rinse it under cold water, brush each side with a little bit of oil, stick it right into your pan and five, six minutes later it's perfectly cooked wild seafood." Sunée demonstrated.
