Roasted Birch-Glazed Salmon
Roary MacPherson, executive chef of the Sheraton Hotel in St. John's, N.L., created this sweet and savory glazed salmon dish to highlight a local product: Lady of the Woods Birch Sap Wine. You can order this wine at sapworld.ca, or use a sweet white wine, such as Riesling or Sauternes, in its place.
