Lake whitefish is a freshwater swimmer with a delicately flavoured flesh and a range across much of Canada. They are especially known for their small head in relation to the length of their bodies. Reel it in and then rustle up this hearty stew as a nutritious and delicious way to take the edge off the winter chill. Serve with crusty whole grain bread.
Many other white-fleshed fish, such as perch, hake, and cod, can also star in this recipe.
Hanging out over a hole with fishing rod in hand is one of the most sustainable fishing practices around. But if you’re fishing for dinner from the store, it can be tricky to ensure you make the healthiest choice for our lakes and oceans. Go to oceanwise.ca/seafood to search for seafood options that you can truly feel good about serving up.

Cauliflower has been having a moment lately, and this salad proves exactly why. Tender caramelized cauliflower is crowned in a glorious sweet and savoury crumble that will ensure it a place on your table all month long. Of all tree nuts, pecans have the highest concentration of flavonoids, which offer beneficial anti-inflammatory effects, and they also protect your cells from oxidative damage. Crumble perfection This crumble topping is too good not to use it on other preparations. Sprinkle over a carrot ribbon salad to add some extra pizzazz, use as a glorious garnish on a soup or stew, or consider generously spooning over your next vegetable “steak” to add some delicious textural variation.
This gloriously comforting dish gets its creamy lusciousness from a can of white beans. Feel free to use whatever vegetables you have on hand instead of broccoli. Pass the pasta Instead of regular pasta, consider serving this sauce over zucchini noodles, carrot noodles, or cooked spaghetti squash.
