    Using oats and omega-3-rich salmon is a nutritional step up from the typical ground beef and breadcrumb mixture. The pomegranate glaze adds a sophisticated touch.

    3 – 160 g cans wild salmon, drained 
    2 large free-range eggs, lightly beaten
    1 cup (250 ml) rolled or quick-cook oats
    1 large carrot, grated
    1 shallot, finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    ¼ cup (60 ml) chopped flat-leaf parsley
    Juice of ½ lemon 
    3 tsp (15 ml) prepared horseradish (optional)
    ¼ tsp (1 ml) salt
    ¼ tsp (1 ml) ground black pepper
    1 cup (250 ml) pomegranate juice 
    3 tsp (15 ml) palm sugar or other raw sugar
    3 tsp (15 ml) balsamic vinegar

    Preheat oven to 180 C.

    In large bowl, flake salmon with fork and stir in eggs, oats, carrot, shallot, garlic, parsley, lemon, horseradish (if using), salt and pepper.

    Add salmon mixture to 2 L greased loaf pan and spread until mixture is of even height and width. Bake for 40 minutes, or until salmon loaf is set in centre. Let cool for several minutes before unmoulding.

    Meanwhile, place pomegranate juice, sugar and vinegar in small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-high and simmer, uncovered, until reduced and slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.

    Unmould salmon loaf and spread pomegranate glaze over top. Slice and serve.

    Mussels with Tomato, Saffron, and Fennel

    B12-rich mussels are a very good and economical source of protein and iron. Steamed mussels are a classic way to enjoy seafood—and so is this rich, aromatic broth of tomato, fennel, and saffron. Be sure to allow saffron to fully infuse to get the full flavour benefit, and finish off the dish with the fragrant fennel fronds. Sustainability status Farmed mussels are considered highly sustainable due to their low impacts on the environment. They are easy to harvest, require no fertilizer or fresh water, and don’t need to be fed externally, as they get all their nutritional requirements from their marine environment. Mussel prep Selection: Look for mussels with shiny, tightly closed shells that smell of the sea. If shells are slightly open, give them a tap. Live mussels will close immediately. Storage: Keep mussels in the fridge in a shallow pan laid on top of ice. Keep them out of water and cover with a damp cloth. Ideally, consume on the day you buy them, but within two days. They need to breathe, so never keep them in a sealed plastic bag. Cleanup: In addition to being sustainable, farmed mussels tend to require less cleaning than wild mussels. Most of the fibrous “beards” that mussels use to grip solid surfaces will have been removed before sale. But if a few remain, they’re easily dispatched: grasp the beard with your thumb and forefinger and pull it toward the hinge of the mussel and give it a tug. Afterward, give mussels a quick rinse and scrub away any areas of mud or seaweed, which, with farmed mussels, will require minimal work.
