Grill something Green

By Lana Gunnlaugson, National SeaChoice Manager

Summer is officially here and Canadians across the country are firing up their barbeques. Preparing your meals in the backyard or on the patio is the perfect way to escape the kitchen heat in the summer while reconnecting with friends and family over casual meals. Try spicing up your barbeque routine with one of the many SeaChoice green “Best Choice” options. And in celebration of Canada Day be sure to choose green-listed “Best Choice” seafood year-round instead of the red-listed “Avoid” options to celebrate and support the sustainable options that exist in Canada. A few great Canadian barbequing ingredients include Pacific cod, B.C. Spot Prawns, farmed sturgeon, and even oysters right in their shell!

For some grilling tips and recipe inspiration check out Chef Dale MacKay’s featured recipes in our partner Federated Co-operatives Limited flyer. There are also many grilled seafood recipes in the SeaChoice Recipe Corner to help you out, but don’t forget to have fun and get creative with your own marinades, rubs, smoked wood chips, and more!

On behalf of the SeaChoice team, we wish you a happy and safe Canada Day and summer!
