I thought of a few recipes for this month’s Canadian Food Experience Project, one being my mom’s butter tarts, but wanted to honor the memory of my dear husband and make something he always liked cooking and loved eating – salmon, steelhead trout, or Arctic char.
Fresh Coho salmon
Jay loved fresh grated ginger on salmon and enjoyed making different marinades, always pairing a bit of sweetness with some spicy heat.
Out of the oven
You can serve the salmon hot in a sandwich, but Jay preferred it cold. Remove oregano and salmon from skin before serving.
Crispy yam chips as a side dish.
Use a mandolin to cut paper-thin slices of yam. Fry slices in Canola oil and finish with a seasoning of fresh ground pepper and Himalayan salt.
Salmon sandwich stacked with butter lettuce, onion and tomato slices, bacon, sandwich pickle, and topped with mayo mixed with a bit of Greek yogurt on toasted sourdough bread. And one slice of toast always had to be buttered.
Note: If you want to prevent your bacon from curling, place a lid on top while it’s frying.
Enjoy with someone special!
Toasted salmon sandwiches are a Canadian favorite. For more favorite Canadian recipes visit other Canadian Food Bloggers from across the country participating in this project.
