I've been meaning to try those cedar planks. Do you have to use anything with them, like oil? And they would be for filets only right?

Those cedar planks are excellent, you just have to soak 'em in water for a while so they don't catch fire while you're cooking stuff on them. Best possible way to barbecue fish, especially salmon, which is best done painted with mayonnaise, drizzled with lemon juice, and wrapped in foil. Yummmmm....

As for what I'm doing this evening--or did, since it's over now--it was out for dinner and a movie ("Mr. and Mrs. Smith" with Brad Pitt and Angeline Joli, not great but worth a look) with friends, back to our place for drinks (12-year old single malt scotch) and conversation, and doing some drive-by posting at canadiancontent.net before going to bed, at which time I hope to jump on Mrs. Sinister...

OK I'm going to pick one up and give it a try.

I haven't had salmon in almost a week. Chowed down on a filet the other day at lunch. It was terribly good.

I get around, pea; I've spent many happy months on the wet coast at various times. I'm not just from the prairies, I'm thoroughly Canadian, I've travelled a lot in this country, and I know what's going on in your part of it. And I like to cook, so I make a point of finding out regional details of that and trying it out.

You poor deprived soul. If you truly hate fish, you've obviously never had good fish properly prepared. Fresh-caught salmon, lake trout and pickerel less than two hours out of the water, mingled with fine things like lemon, dill, basil, oregano, butter... It's almost enough to make me religious. Almost...

Said out here on the west coast we like the salsa..cept we make all different kinds..we mix and match everything...you name it..you can put it in salsa...its wacky I tell ya...my brother likes to soak smoked salmon in vodka and leave it for a few weeks and than strain it and use it to make his ceasars....you don't need to stir it either, you just use the pickled asparagus spear he gives ya.

Dex, we took relatives from Ontario out salmon fishing and had a BBQ westcoast style. They couldn't believe how different our salmon tastes from the canned stuff. I told them we don't even sell that stuff here.

Never had pickerel but I love halibut. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

Hate to have to tell you this folks, but Atlantic salmon is superior to Pacific salmon. It comes out of much colder water, has firmer flesh, and the taste and texture is to die for. And while I'm trying to let you down gently: Ontario and Nova Scotia apples are tastier than anything grown in British Columbia. But you have to go to Ontario to get 'em, they don't get shipped west.

And canned salmon, of course, is just the floor sweepings from the fish plant compared to fresh stuff, and barely qualifies as salmon at all. The taste is recognizably there, but it's a pale and lame imitation of the flavour of the real thing.

it's quite interesting ....the whole process of nicotine detox ....(if you will)....... and is getting easier with each day. Can breath better too,


You will know when you are ready... and when the decision is made..... just go with it. Build in an incentive (continuous ) program...... and this helps. ( I count the money I did NOT spend (on smokes) and it is amazing how fast the total grows.

Not exactly a fun Sat evening was it???

Congrats congrats congrats! The damn cigs are the hardest thing to quit!! I've done it a dozen times, but always go back. Quit for 18 months, one time.

There are so many reasons to quit -- beyond the obvious health stuff. It's expensive, it stinks, it limits me since I can no longer enjoy a puff after a nice dinner out, my dog hates it, my doctor nags me, and the single biggest reason I would like to quit is that I abhor being a slave to it! I do not have the freedom to not smoke without quitting entirely. I am forced to smoke every hour or less if I do not wish to experience withdrawal. That pisses me off! I hate being a slave to anything, feeling like my free will has been stolen.

Good for you, Breeze. Keep us posted on your progress. Every time I hear someone succeed it strengthens my own desire to quit.
