Spaghetti with Hidden-Vegetable Tomato Sauce

Sometimes what you don’t know can help you, especially when it comes to getting vegetables on the table. Kids will always eat pasta with tomato sauce but they won’t always eat their vegetablesso it can help to magically, mysteriously hide them in the sauce. This is the sort of sauce that you may end up making on a regular basis, so it’s worth investing in an immersion blender. It really speeds up the works.

Fettuccini Alfredo

This classic dish is elegantly tasty, simple and super speedy. The creamy, cheesy sauce that makes Fettuccini Alfredo so memorable easily forms when great Parmesan cheese and a splash of cream are simply tossed together with hot noodles and aromatics. This dish is at its best when you make it and serve it immediately.

Potato Fish Cakes

Potato Fish Cakes

Historically, fish cakes have been one of the most common ways to eat fish in the Maritime Provinces of Canada. Usually they were made with preserved salt cod, but today they’re much tastier with fresh salmon. These crispy cakes are included with the gourmet breakfast served every morning at the beautiful 5-star Inn at Bay Fortune, nestled in Fortune Bay, Prince Edward Island - they are as easy to make as they are to enjoy!

Whitefish Provençale

When a local fisherman shows up at my door with a fresh halibut, this is the gold standard recipe I reach for. It’s my favourite way to add lots of simple, bright Mediterranean flavour to the firm, meaty whitefish. This dish is spectacular enough for a special occasion but easy enough for a quick weeknight dinner.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Salmon

Prosciutto-Wrapped Salmon

Wrapping prosciutto around salmon fillets is an easy way to dress up fish while adding some intense flavour and bringing flair to your table. The prosciutto is very easy to work with. It actually “shrink wraps” as it cooks, tightly sealing itself to the fish. It’s a spectacular presentation and very tasty.

Maple Mustard Grilled Salmon

Maple Mustard Grilled Salmon

Salmon is a regular guest at our table, often grilled with this simple sauce. Its sweet and pungent flavour easily stands up to the richness of the fish. Whenever possible we choose wild Pacific salmon; it’s the most sustainable choice available. We’re also big fans of farm-raised Atlantic salmon. It’s much better for us, and the environment, than beef or meat every day.
