Hello Blogosphere! I’m Candis and I work in Guest Services at Oceanfront Suites at Cowichan Bay. One of my interests is cooking and there is no shortage of wonderful fresh, locally grown ingredients in Cowichan Bay. Every suite in the hotel features a kitchenette full of cooking tools to help you whip up many different recipes. I often hear about what wonderful dishes guests have prepared while staying with us, so I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you.
Today’s recipe features a broiled salmon and is super easy to make. It’s a healthy meal to serve to your family and is a tasty accompaniment to a fresh salad. You could use snapper, haddock, or trout as an alternative to salmon.
