    Steelhead and Smoked Mozzarella Flatbread

    Closely related to the Pacific salmon, steelhead has bright orange flesh and a taste that falls somewhere between trout and salmon. Most steelhead sold is sustainably farm-raised, making it a good choice to enjoy year round.

    Tip

    If pressed for time, try using whole wheat or gluten-free pita bread in place of the potato flatbread crust.

    Directions

    01

    To make flatbread, start by preheating oven to 400 F (200 C). Line baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.

    02

    Gently boil potatoes until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain and return saucepan to burner to dry potatoes.

    03

    While potatoes cook, whisk together chia seeds and water in small bowl and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.

    04

    Add potatoes to large bowl and mash with fork until as smooth as possible. Add chia mixture, oat flour, almond meal, oil, vinegar, salt, garlic powder, and thyme. Stir together until well combined.

    05

    Transfer dough to prepared baking tray and, with rubber spatula, spread into 1/2 in (1.25 cm) thick oval. If needed, lightly grease spatula with more olive oil to make spreading of dough easier. Bake until crust is set and edges start to turn golden brown, about 35 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside. Keep oven on.

    06

    While flatbread bakes, assemble toppings. Place steelhead fillet, skin side down, on another parchment-lined baking tray and roast in oven alongside flatbread until cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside until cool enough to handle. Discard skin and scrape away any grey fat from under skin. Flake fillet into 1 in (2.5 cm) pieces and set aside.

    07

    In bowl, stir together cheese, garlic, parsley, dill, red onions, capers, and olives.

    08

    Brush 1 Tbsp (15 mL) olive oil over flatbread before sprinkling with cheese mixture and flaked steelhead trout. Return to oven and bake until cheese is melted and toppings are warmed through, about 8 to 12 minutes. Drizzle with remaining 1 Tbsp (15 mL) olive oil and sprinkle with pine nuts. Cut into slices and serve while warm.

    Waffled Chicken Quesadillas with Chipotle Pepper Sauce

    Waffled Chicken Quesadillas with Chipotle Pepper Sauce

    These whimsical weeknight quesadillas offer a great excuse to break out the long-forgotten waffle iron. The smoky, tangy pepper sauce is the perfect sidekick for this dish, but it’s also wonderful when tossed with pasta, stuffed into sandwiches, and slathered on burgers. TIP : When assembling quesadillas, keep fillings centred 1/2 in (1.25 cm) from the edge of the tortilla so they don’t spill over. TIP : Chipotle chiles are dried, smoked jalapenos. Adobo is a slightly sweet red sauce. Put them together in a can and they become a versatile pantry staple to add deep smoky heat to sauces, dips, marinades, and soups. No waffle iron? Then make these quesadillas using this skillet method. Place 1 tortilla in skillet, preferably cast iron, and cook over medium heat until dark spots appear and bottom is crispy, about 1 1/2 minutes. Turn over and cook until crispy and darkened on the other side. Remove tortilla from skillet and replace with another tortilla. Cook until darkened and crispy on one side, flip, and top with stuffing ingredients. Place crispy tortilla on top, press down gently, cover pan, and cook for 1 minute, or until cheese has melted.
