Strawberry Sauce


Any fresh berries will work in this sauce for the Medicine Wheel Cured Salmon. Use organic frozen berries if seasonal fruit is unavailable.

Recipe courtesy of Chef Rich Francis


  • 2 cups (500 ml) strawberries
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) brown sugar
  • 1 cup (250 ml) water
  • 1 Tsp (15 ml) black pepper
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 inch (2.5 cm) piece of vanilla bean
  • 6 sprigs thyme
  • Small bunch of white sage
  • Juice 1/2 lemon


  1. Combine all ingredients in small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until flavours start to come together and mixture starts to thicken, about 15 minutes.
  2. Sauce should be thinner than jam, but not too runny.
  3. Add lemon juice to taste (sauce should be tangy).
