Protein Share August 20

This week's share will introduce you to Pike.  A wonderful fresh water fish that is firm, sweet, and flavourful.  You can fry it, bake it, turn it into tacos, chuck it in a stir fry, pop it on the bbq.  Have leftovers?  Because pike is so firm, it makes great fake tunafish sandwiches, fake tuna salad or just reheat. When I was traveling in Trinidad and Tobago years ago, the local street food was bake and shark.  Basically a fried fish sandwich.  The firm texture of Pike perfectly replicates the firm fish used in those sandwiches.  mmmm.   Check out the recipe here. This week's protein share to have. Pike, wild caught in northern Manitoba.  This pike is filleted by wonderfully skilled workers in Northern Manitoba who have learned from their ancestors the best way to process fish.  Barry, from whom we purchase the fish, has set up a government inspected fish processing plant near the Pas Manitoba.  He employs the local community, keeping the skills and traditions of fish processing alive.   We are very proud to be selling his sustainably harvested fish.
