Salmon and Guava Stacked Salad with Horseradish Raita and Tamarind Dressing

Salmon and Guava Stacked Salad with Horseradish Raita and Tamarind Dressing

This salad embodies me on a plate. It takes childhood experiences and intersects them with South Asian flavours and ingredients. Each bite is a redefinition of the journey towards home.

Born and raised in Kamloops, the Adams River salmon run was a huge part of the field trip experience of my elementary school years. I admit at the time, I was dismissive of nature. My naive approach to life didn’t really understand the connection to nature. Something so far removed from now, when I am constantly humbled and fascinated by it. The cyclical nature of the salmon run hits a nerve; the no end and no beginning is poetic.

Pomegrante Razatziki

Pomegrante Razatziki

I love making this yogurt sauce. It’s a riff on India’s yogurt side dish and a play on Greece’s creamy dip, hence the name razatziki. It’s a mouthful of a name, so I call it raita (pronounced rie-tha) when I serve it with Indian food, and tzatziki when I serve it with Greek food.
