    Omega-3-rich rainbow trout is gussied up with this fresh tasting green sauce. The best micro greens to use include brown mustard, arugula, cress, radish, or fenugreek. Wild salmon or Arctic char are good fish choices as well. Use extra sauce as a salad dressing.

    Salt and pepper, to taste
    1 cup (250 mL) packed micro greens
    1 shallot, minced
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1 tsp (5 mL) lemon zest

    Wild Salmon with Ramp Salsa Verde

    Wild salmon is by far the best salmon you can get — it is sustainable and is more healthful than farm raised. Over-fishing, pollution, and the damming of rivers have depleted populations of wild salmon around the world, but in the Pacific Northwest locals are fiercely active in their efforts to protect the wild salmon population. A few years ago my sister surprised me with a chartered fishing trip out of Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, which was a great opportunity to learn about the native species of fish in the area, including salmon. Sadly, the salmon evaded us that day, but we did accidentally catch a bald eagle that snatched a cod we were reeling in. The bird got tangled in the line and for a minute we were really concerned we would have to remove the line from an angry bald eagle. Lucky for everyone it managed to free itself and we were all spared.
