Roary MacPherson, executive chef of the Sheraton Hotel in St. John's, N.L., created this sweet and savoury 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.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons Birch Sap Wine or other sweet white wine
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chive
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard

Stir together brown sugar, maple syrup, wine, green onions, chives, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
