There is nothing better than good food after a bike ride. For the last six years I have been cycling and eating all over the world. From grilled snakes in Cambodia to wild pigs in France. With this menu you can discover all my pedal powered adventures. Explore & Enjoy
A side of fresh wild salmon cooked on a locally grown cedar plank. It does not get much more British Columbian than this. I first tasted this inventive dish in Beauty Creek, just North of the Colombia Ice fields. It is perfect for the BBQ now that summer is here or over a fire. Either way salmon on a plank is a great tasting, great fun option for cooking a great fish.
