Dad's Salmon and Vacation Pictures

vermillion lakes

Our family (mom, dad, sister, and me) spent a wonderful vacation in the stunning Banff National Park.  We spent a few days each near Banff and Lake Louise.  We went hiking.  We got bit by mosquitoes.  Dad taught us girls how to fly fish (Mom helped, as she can fly fish too).  We played cards and dominoes.  Sister left early so we couldn't go hiking at Moraine Lake - we needed a group of 4 just in case we came upon a Grizzly Bear!! So, we went canoeing on the most beautiful lake that I've ever seen (see Moraine Lake below).  We saw family and friends in Calgary as well! It was a fabulous trip!

We also got to grill (well, Dad grilled), because we were camping!  We had our favourite sauce on wild Coho salmon.  It was delicious.  My dad made up this recipe a while ago, and pretty much every time we have salmon now, this is the way it gets prepared.  Sometimes he uses a cedar board, but it is delicious either way.  The sauce is so good that we always bring the rest of it to the table and spoon or brush more onto our salmon or our vegetables or pasta or rice or whatever else is on our plates.  You won't go back to preparing salmon any other way!

Dad's Salmon Glaze

1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup honey mustard
1 clove of garlic, crushed

Place all ingredients in a small sauce pan and heat for 15 minutes over low.  Baste salmon steaks or fillets with the mixture as you barbeque.
