Salade Niçoise With Hot-Smoked Trout  

Cooked and lightly smoked, hot-smoked fish is a delicious way to eat Ontario-raised trout. It flakes beautifully and works well in this classic French dish. If you can’t find trout, use any hot-smoked fish. 

Grilled Halibut & Chard with Gremolata Topping

Halibut is a good source of heart-healthy omega-3s, as is salmon, which also works well in this recipe. The homemade pickled onions are easy, and great on sandwiches and bur­gers; they’ll last a few weeks in the fridge. As for gremolata, it’s an Italian condiment served with veal or fish; it gives a burst of flavour, bringing the mild taste of halibut to life.

Pasta, Veggie & Blue Cheese Salad

This salad can easily be made with gluten-free pasta as well. If fresh peas are available, buy two (or more!) bags and freeze the extra for future use. They’re delicious in season and can be added to many recipes. Blue cheese varies in taste intensity by brand; a simple way to tell if it’s really strong is to sniff the package.
