Summer, Fennel, and Coho Salmon

Even while on holidays it seems I am surrounded by herbs ! This Fennel is growing wild along the edge of small harbor called Deep Bay on the sheltered east coast of Vancouver Island. While sipping coffee on the dock a local sports fisherman told me that there is an excellent Coho Salmon run this year. Luckily they have lots of Fennel for seasoning that delicious fresh salmon close at hand !
