From Pauline Duncan's "Tlingit Recipes of Today and Long Ago," a collection of her own recipes, as well as those of her family and friends.
Place onions, red potatoes and vegetables inside salmon. Select skunk cabbage leaves that are large and fresh. Wash leaves. Lay salmon on leaf and wrap.
Place in a covered pan or place tin foil around leaves and salmon. Bake in oven at 375 degrees for one to two hours. Fish will soak up flavorings from the leaves.
Open fire - dig a fire pit and place volcanic rocks on bottom of pit. Place salmon in wrapped leaves under pit. Bake to desired consistency, 45 minutes to one hour (depending on heat of fire).
