Happy 147th Birthday Canada!

“I believe the world needs more Canada” – Bono

Having lived in almost every province in this wide and vast country of ours, I believe we are the luckiest people on the planet to call this land, home. We have unsurpassed beauty, peace, freedom and its a great place to raise your baby. Yes, we fight a bit, amongst ourselves, but doesn’t every family? Canada is a rare and beautiful place that if it is your home, you are one of the very privileged in this world. Give thanks and have gratitude for this country- so young, and so unbridled. Happy Birthday! Start the BBQ! So Canadian to grill some delicious wild Atlantic or BC Salmon  -a great way to celebrate the holiday!

To prepare Canada Day BBQ Sauce, heat 3 Table spoons oil in saucepan over medium heat. Sauté 1/2 cup diced onions and one diced garlic for 3 minutes, or until tender. Add several Table spoons (depending on how many fillets you need to BBQ) of edible gardens Garlic & Rosemary balsamic reduction ( or any flavour if you find yourself short) and let sauce simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Coat salmon with 1/4 of the edible gardens Canada Day sauce and reserve remainder of the sauce for dipping. Place fish in the refrigerator and allow it to marinade for 2 hours. Preheat grill. Place salmon skin-side down, on a lightly oiled grill, cover and cook for 12 minutes per inch of thickness. Remove fish from grill and serve with edible gardens Canada Day barbecue sauce. WOW so delicious and celebratory!

Happy Birthday my precious country.
