Ten Mile Meal Recipes
Edmonton Food Columnist Tina Faiz has these recipes using local food products.
Carol Neuman launched 10 Mile Meal to celebrate the food cultures of Alberta's rural communities that grow our food. The inaugural dinner, held near Calmar and Thorsby, was a decidedly German affair. Here are two delicious recipes from the meal by chef Annand Ollivierre, for you to recreate at home. Details about future meals and tickets are available at 10MileMeal.
Carol Neuman is one of three panelists at TEDx Edmonton's Salon Series called "Food for Thought" on April 30. Tickets available at Eventbrite.
10 Mile Meal Recipes
Smoked White Fish Remoulade recipe
Courtesy chef Annand Ollivierre
Serves 4 -6 people generously
1½ - 2 cups flaked smoked white fish (any other strongly smoked fish would work)
1/3 cup mayonnaise (homemade preferred)
½cup chopped dill pickles
¼cup chopped green onions
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard or horseradish
pinch salt and pepper
Pick through the whitefish to make sure there are no bones.
Combine all ingredients together well. Do not over mix, you want it to have a little texture and not turn into a fine paste, just enough to combine the flavours.
Once combined, allow the mixture to rest for 30 minutes-1 hour to allow the flavours to blend. After rest period it is ready to serve.
Place a heaping spoonful on a homemade potato chip. (There are many good recipes on the internet) or if in a pinch, plain chips from the grocery store will do.
