Salmon Poached in Pickling Spices

Pickle juice makes a nice poaching liquid, but I’ve found that pickling spices without the vinegar are even better for poaching fish, especially salmon. You can make your own spice mix or you can buy prepackaged pickling salts. I top this poached salmon with my Pecan and Sundried Tomato Tapenade and my Mock Sour Cream. It can be served hot or cold.

GMO Salmon Approval Backlash

WASHINGTON – The Food and Drug Administration’s decision to approve genetically modified salmon will still leave consumers in the dark about what’s in their food, underscoring the need for a mandatory, national GMO labeling requirement, The Environmental Working Group (EWG) said today. “Foods with genetically modified ingredients line the shelves of our supermarket aisles, and today the federal government gave the green light to the first GMO salmon,” said Colin O’Neil, EWG’s director of agriculture policy. “Yet we will still have no way of knowing whether what we’re eating has been genetically modified.” The salmon is the first GMO animal […]
