Steaming fish in parchment paper packages keeps it juicy and moist. While the fish cooks, prepare the coleslaw.
6 wild salmon or halibut fillets
2 Tbsp (30 mL) soy sauce
2 Tbsp (30 mL) maple syrup
1 tsp (5 mL) dried ground ginger
1/2 tsp (2 mL) sesame oil
1/2 apple, unpeeled, cored
1/2 fennel bulb
4 cups (1 L) shredded purple cabbage
Place fish fillets on large piece of parchment paper. Stir soy with maple, ginger, and sesame oil. Spoon half over fish fillets. Bring ends of parchment together and fold over to tightly seal.
Place on a baking sheet and bake in preheated 425 F (220 C) oven until cooked through, 15 to 18 minutes, depending on thickness of fish.
Meanwhile, using a mandolin or sharp knife, shave apple into thin pieces, then julienne. Shave fennel into long thin strips. Place apple, fennel, and cabbage in bowl and drizzle with remaining soy mixture. Toss to mix and let stand while fish is baking.
To serve, place fish on plates and top with slaw. Spoon juices from parchment paper over top. Garnish with dill sprigs.
Tip: Insert spatula between fish and skin, lift fish and leave skin on paper.

If you’re hungry for a nighttime snack, then spoon up this creamy, sweet-tart yogurt bowl to help promote some sweet dreams. It’s also a great breakfast option with a little granola tossed on top. The cherry compote can be made up to 5 days in advance. Less is more Many people would be surprised by the amount of added sugar that can be found in flavoured yogurts, including vanilla. A healthier option is to select products that are labelled “plain” and then let natural sweetness come from fruit toppings.
For many of us, turkey is a comfort food that recalls happy memories. This stew is one that is comforting both to make and to eat. Simmered slowly over a few hours, turkey drumsticks deliver rich flavour as well as a huge punch of protein. Tarragon gives it a fresh, bright pop of flavour that balances the earthy richness of the stew. Turkey contains high levels of B vitamins and selenium, as well as tryptophan, which has been explored in recent research for its role in the formation of the mood regulator serotonin.
