This morning I had the pleasure of presenting the following recipe on CBC's Weekend Morning Show with host Ismaila Alfa.  The Wild Caught Sockeye Salmon is in season now and available at Gimli Fish.  Garlic Scapes are also now in season and found in our farmer's markets.

Garlic Scape Pesto on Sockeye Salmon

1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 Tbsp. fresh lime or lemon juice
1/4 lb. scapes
1/2 cup olive oil
Salt to taste
Optional:  ground almonds or walnuts ~ 1/4 cup

Purée scapes and olive oil in a food processor until smooth. Stir in Parmesan and lime or lemon juice and season to taste.

Spread pesto over salmon fillet, about 1/4 inch thick.  Bake in 400ºF oven for about 10 - 12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.

Serve immediately.

Lunch for 25 at Arkadash was amazing. The food was great and service top notch. You are living proof that good food inspires all sorts of creativity and later Friday evening I had a brainwave. The idea would entail lots of hard work for me and none for you (ha ha). I just need you for a sounding board. Please?
