I have been toying with what Canadian Food means to me, after coming in to contact with Canada Eats. After the following meal, I felt like I had a contender. Fresh seafood, local ingredients, prepared simply. What more could you ask?
We kicked things off with a tomato, mozzarella and sweet onion salad. The onions were from a farm which has a special place in my farmer's market heart; they were very fair to me when a battle ensued over the last dozen eggs. The tomatoes and basil Rob picked up while I was standing in line for the eggs.
This was followed with wild salmon, seasoned with a little salt, seared just the way we like it, and Pemberton potatoes, first of the season tossed with a little cream and tarragon.
The meal was capped off with a trio of local berries and cream.
