About the Recipe

Support your local fishermen by looking for wild and sustainable BC salmon at various retailers and in restaurants; visit them down at the docks to get this Canadian premium product straight from the fishers and help support their industry and their families; at your local fishmongers like F.I.S.H. in Burnaby or Codfathers in the Okanagan; or community supported fisheries, who give you access to local seafood year round and pay a fisher a fair price for the entire catch!

Ingredients

  • 1 side of fresh or frozen Wild BC Salmon

  • 1 pint of fresh BC Strawberries

  • 1 pint of fresh BC Raspberries

    • I like visiting a U-Pick strawberry and raspberry farm when in season to make it a family friendly experience that helps my kids see where the fruit comes from and gets everyone involved in making dinner. Fresh or frozen, local berries can be enjoyed year round.

  • ½ cup fresh mint, sliced with a very sharp knife

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
