The Salmon Slingers

Salmon cook-off coming

The fourth annual Salmon Cook-off will be taking place at the Fort St. James National Historic Site on Sept. 19.

It’s not too early to start thinking about the 4th annual Salmon Cook-off, taking place at the Fort St. James National Historic Site on Saturday, Sept. 19.

This year’s cook-off coincides with Métis Day, so there’ll be a lot to see and do at the site all day. The final program of events is still being worked out, but jiggers and fiddlers will be there, and there’ll be an opportunity to take part in a tomahawk throwing contest, with separate categories for youth, men, and women.

The salmon cook-off begins at 8:30 am, when teams arrive and light their fires. Firewood and salmon fillets are provided, but teams bring their own seasonings and secret recipes. The first 100 visitors to the site get to be the judges and sample the different entries, with the winner announced at 1:00 pm.

There are five teams registered: the District of Fort St. James, the Friends of the Fort, Métis Nation BC, Team Nu Yiz, and Samwitch’s Catering. A maximum of five teams can take part, but anyone interested in going on a waiting list should contact April Hilland at (250) 996-7191, ext. 27.
