Enjoy a truly Canadian meal to celebrate Canada 150
By News Canada
Canada’s 150th birthday is a time to celebrate all things Canadian. Being Canadian brings on thoughts of salmon swimming upstream to spawn, peameal bacon sizzling in a pan, beavertails on Ottawa’s Rideau Canal and tapping maple trees for fresh syrup when the cold winter starts to break.
Sifto is celebrating its 150th anniversary along with Canada’s milestone birthday so the company commissioned leading Canadian gastro chef Mike Shedden to create a perfect Canadian dish of salt-cured maple Canadian Atlantic salmon. This dish is best served cold on top of a dill crème fraiche with fried capers on French bread.
Sesquicentennial Salt Cured Maple Salmon
Serves: 25 1-oz slices
- 1 kg Atlantic salmon, skin on
- 1 kg Sifto table salt
- 1/2 kg granulated sugar
- 2 oranges, zested
- 250 g cracked and roasted black pepper
- 1/4 cup smoked paprika
- 3/4 cup real maple syrup
- Mix all dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl until completely combined.
- Coat salmon in cure and reserve 40 per cent of mixture.
- Lay salmon skin side down on a baking sheet with half of remaining cure underneath.
- Mix in maple syrup to remaining cure and coat the exposed salmon in the wet cure.
- Wrap tightly in cellophane and leave in refrigerator for three days.
- Flip salmon once every 24 hours for best results.
- Once salmon is cured, rinse cure off well and slice salmon thinly and on a slight bias.

Looking to refresh some spaces in your home? Consider these bathroom makeover ideas that won’t cost you an arm and a leg
It’s common knowledge that there are two things you can renovate in a house to increase its value; the kitchen or your bathrooms. There is no coincidence that they are also the two most expensive rooms to renovate.While you could easily shell out thousands to replace your bathroom and give it an upgrade, you don’t have to. There are lots of options that can make it look like a completely new space. Here are a few:Paint
This is probably the most obvious and the easiest in terms of upgrades for a bathroom. Finding the right paint for your room can make all the difference. Choose a colour that suits the room.Light colours work best for smaller rooms that can often feel dark. If you plan on using white or light features for your bathroom, consider a darker, warmer colour. Greys, blues or greens are the most common colours for bathroom spaces.Vanity
A relatively easy change you can make to the bathroom for a few hundred dollars is the vanity. Often it’s the size of the vanity that will determine the choice you should make. You should also consider how much storage space you’ll be looking for. If you are not a person that holds a lot of items in your bathroom, a simple vanity will do.Lighting
Adding in a simple lighting piece can make a big difference in a small room. Look for a statement piece like a beautiful chandelier to really brighten up the room and add to the overall aesthetic. Just be sure to use your existing light sockets, otherwise your costs can add up if you have to bring in an electrician to make some changes.Re-tile
The great thing about a bathroom makeover means there is less square footage to have to worry about. If you are handy, consider adding new tiles around the bathtub or even the walls. New floor tiles can set you back only a couple hundred dollars but change what the room looks like entirely.Little touches
Don’t underestimate how much the little things can make a difference. Updating the colours of your towels or shower curtain can change the way a small room like the bathroom looks quite a bit. Consider adding statement pieces like a gold or brass faucet. Adding shelves in the room can make a great place for other statement pieces without taking away from usable space.For a few hundred dollars you can easily changes what your bathroom looks like and give it the refresher that it needs.Madisyn is a freelance writer and social media obsessed traveller based out of Toronto.
