“After getting several requests from different wine club members, I decided to share a fish recipe!

This one is a family favourite. My grandmother used to prepare it with white fish, but I prefer it with salmon and even more with sockeye.

It can be eaten as an appetizer beside a green salad or as a main dish depending on which meal of the day it is.

I also love to serve it with lemon and dill whipped cream, it really enhances the flavour.

One very important note, do not overcook it or it will be too hard.”   

Pairs best with the 2017 Tradition Chardonnay.
