Maple-Marinated Whitefish with Cranberry Salsa

From Anita Stewart Food Critic and Author of The Flavours of Canada

Celebrate Canada Day 2

(NC) – It began in 2003 with what I named The World’s Longest Barbecue and loosely called ‘Canada Day 2’ in support of our beef industry. Since then, it has taken on the status of a tradition where Canadians gather at their grills on the first Saturday of August, toss great local foods onto their barbecues and share their stories on the specially-created website www.flavoursofcanada.ca.

On this one day, we have an unequalled chance to see culinary Canada in action –an extraordinary, almost voyeuristic, look into the kitchens and lives of real Canadians who, at the grass roots of our nation, care deeply about our agricultural community and those who put the food onto our tables.

So join our party. Log on, tell me your stories, spread the word, challenge your friends and, on August 4th, let’s celebrate this magnificent country of ours. As one participant wrote ‘Go Canada Go!’ It’s just that simple.

The commercial fishery for whitefish spans much of northern Canada. Fresh from the lakes, it’s one of the most delicious fish on our national menu. This recipe can also be used for salmon.
