    Sumac spiced wild sockeye salmon fillet, roasted parsnip and pickled veggies.

    What does sumac taste like? I saw this the other day in the spice aisle and can honestly say I can't remember ever tasting it.

    It's lemony. In a mezzes/tapas restaurant we go to sometimes (wide geographical area starting in Andalucia and ending in the Levant) they have a spice mix on the table of sumac and coarse salt to dip bread in that has first been drizzled with olive oil.

    This. Its lemony BUT it also has this "interesting" smell and taste to it. Difficult to describe. Do what I did the first time, buy it and try it. I love it :)

    Thanks both of you. I think I may have to pick it up. What is the best protein for it in your opinion--if not using fish?

    Dinner on Air Canada flight 888, economy class. The chicken option. Snack of calamari in the Ottawa airport pub.

    That chicken option looks pretty iffy to me....I hope you made it home safe!!

    Does not have to be protein. You can sprinkle on veggies, mix into a dressing etc. Do a sumac crusted roaste / baked chicken?

    I would pick a protein that works well with an acidic tang and maybe with a little fat content to compliment the earthy scent. Lamb chops, chicken thighs or pork ribs come to mind. Traditionallly used in middle eastern cooking but also the deep south of Italy.

    If you are trying it for the first time, try in in a neutral setting such as mixing sumac with a little salt and dipping bread that has been dipped or drizzled with olive oil. Or on buttered popcorn. Useful for adding a citrus tang when you don't want to add any extra liquid to a recipe, such as for balancing the flavour of meatballs or kofte.

    That chicken option was a bit iffy. But the other option was pasta with pesto and my experience with pasta on airplanes has been pretty awful. Although I love homemade pesto, I hate the taste of ascorbic acid in the industrially manufactured stuff. Chicken option was kind of a 70s chicken a la king. Tasted like childhood TV dinners.

    Air Canada food is not great. Best long haul economy class food I've had has been Thai Airways, Japanese Airlines and Alitalia. But yeah, those are national carriers of countries where people are a bit food obsessed.

    Whiskey after dinner, that I understand. On the rocks please.

    Roll your own California hand rolls and miso soup. Fillings were sushi rice, cucumber, avocado, crab sticks, omelette, green onion, chive, pickled daikon. Condiments were kikkoman soy, kewpie mayo, wasabi in a tube, furikake. The miso soup contained tofu cubes and hijiki seaweed.
