This past issue we looked at a crisp pilsner with smoked fish. In future online editions look for more expanded food aspect and recipes.Use this combo in the upcoming Labour Day Weekend as a appetizer/ party snack. The Beer:Steamworks Pilsner (BC)Starts off with a snap of crisp carbonation and finishes with an extra hoppy kick. In between look for malt and citrus. A nice quench on a hot summer day, easy drinking and a good call to serve when you have a variety of beer drinkers. 5% alc. The Bite:Hot Smoked SalmonHook Fine Foods on Fort Street in Victoria smokes and cures their own seafood. This month we have three bites: a super moist and oily sockeye filet; hook & line caught, wild Chinook nuggets; and a peppered Coho filet. We’re hooked. Each are great on their own, but your best bet is to serve all three, as each brings different flavours out of the pilsner. (In Vancouver pick up quality smoked salmon at Finest At Sea.) The Conclusion:We love the smokey, sweet richness of the salmon against the lemony, fresh tasting and slightly bitter west coast pilsner. A perfect lazy days summer combo. fishhookpilsnerSalmonsmoked salmonsteamworks SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Colin Hynes Colin is the Assistant Editor at EAT.
