Been craving marinated tofu for a while but can't find a recipe.. I believe it was extra firm tofu marinated in soy sauce white wine vinegar ginger garlic and green onions. Marinated over night and eaten as is. Anyone know a proper recipe?

Largest Sockeye Salmon run in recorded history expected this year on the Fraser River ? Vancouver Is Awesome

Early indicators suggest that the salmon return on the Fraser River could be the biggest in recorded history.

More than 72 million sockeye could be in this year’s run, which is more than double the previous record four years ago. In 2010, 30 million fish flooded through the river, and the sockeye this year are the spawn of those salmon.

Ocean conditions have also been good for the past three years.

It is being called the fishing of a lifetime, and many in the industry say they are excited to get on the water this summer.

^every four years, the Adams River run. Combined with a few others, it should be good. However, DFO have been wrong before (way off a few years). I'm emptying out the freezer for it. Remember to freeze the fish whole, as it keeps fresher and longer this way. Do not cut the fish or gut it.

Forgot to mention, if you have little kids, take them to the Adams River during the big run. I believe it starts late September and goes into late October. It's an awesome experience to see a river turn red. Death and life together as one. Two sockeye together to spawn. They do their thing and then die soon after, becoming food for the avelin/fry when they hatch and find their way out to sea to start the cycle again. This act has fascinated people for thousands of years.

The place turns into a bit of a circus with people selling souvenirs and stuff, but it's something you have to witness at least once in your life. Plus, you can visit Lomac. I think he lives somewhere near there.

yeeep, but agreed, DFO could be wrong like the screw-up they made in 2010. There should have been more openings.

Now...if I can find a better alternative than Canneries for my catch, that would be dandy.

Looks like many already had same ideas, farmer markets aren't accepting anymore Salmon vendors Lol.

There's a few different places where you can see them, it's pretty crazy to see.

I don't recall ever seeing salmon vendors at the Langley Farmers' Market. They might be able to accept an application from you. I'm assuming you haven't already explored that option, of course.

^it is this year. Nature or should I say sockeye salmon always do the 4 year cycle. No deciding to wait one year or come back one year early. It's like Vulcan Pon Farr. Other species of salmon have different cycles. Pinks or humpback salmon do a two year cycle, while others are one to three. Farmed salmon, yuk, are another story. They are the GMO of salmon. In fact they are not even indigenous to the West Coast.

Can your fish. There are lots of info on the Internet.

Just be careful and follow the instructions properly to avoid botulism.

Bernardin Home Canning: Because You Can


Google "Home canning salmon." or something like that.


There's nothing like canning your own salmon - so fresh and the taste is second to none. You will be so popular with family and friends.

There's nothing like canned salmon with soy sauce on warm rice. Well, salmon eggs (Ikura) come close (Chum roe, to be exact). Chum or Keta is one of the most disqusting fish to can and are one of the cheapest species of salmon to buy, but their roe is prized in countries like Japan.


Also, canned salmon takes a while to mature. You can eat it right away, but it improves with age. Shelf life is 3 to 5 years. After that, the taste deteriorates.

Foreign duty-dodger wants visa renewed | Vancouver 24 hrs

Quote:
A “very wealthy” Chinese national who only claimed $710 in purchases but brought back $57,000 in luxury goods from Hermes in Las Vegas has been convicted and fined following a Crown appeal.

Xiaochen Zhao, a University of Victoria student here on visa, had her charges stayed earlier on condition of community service after a judge heard she’d likely be “inadmissible” in Canada with a conviction.

In a Wednesday decision, however, the B.C. Court of Appeal disagreed. It said immigration issues “must not divert the judge” from an appropriate sentence.

The court found the frequent traveller — a 24-year-old economics student and daughter of a wealthy Beijing businessman — had twice brought back undeclared goods in the space of a month in November 2011.

Well said. She should have thought about ending up inadmissible before ignoring the law (twice!).

$57k of shit in one trip too. Sounds like she's spoiled as shit already.

edit5: and she's going to school in finance! like hell we want her working in finance here in Canada if this is the kind of stuff she does.

My guess is that she's going to try and sell most of it back home in China. Though given she's the daughter of a prominent businessman in Beijing, she's likely treating herself as well.
