DSC_0940

Geographically the second largest country in the world, Canada’s cuisine varies greatly from coast to coast. Spanning the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans, and drawing inspiration from First Nations, England, France, Scotland, and Asian roots, pinning down one Canadian dish is no easy feat. Wild salmon, available from coast to coast, emerges as a natural choice, and a healthy one. Packed with heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and boasting plenty of high quality protein, wild salmon easily upholds its reputation as a health benefit powerhouse. Wild mushrooms flourish in many regions of Canada, and offer ample amounts of vitamin D, B vitamins, and a variety of antioxidants and minerals that boost your immune system and strengthen your body’s defense against disease. Maple syrup, possibly the most famous Canadian ingredient, also offers antioxidants that can help prevent disease, and strengthen your body from the inside out. The maple syrup caramelizes beautifully on the salmon, bringing out its natural sweetness. Getting this delicious and healthy meal to the table is a breeze, going from stove to table in around 30 minutes.
