By Stacey MarpleHaida Gwaii ObserverHaida Gwaii Community Futures hosted an inaugural, live competition called Seafood Wars at this years Tlell Fall Fair. Dan Peebles of Masset won the top prize for his one-of-a-kind seafood burger, which intrigued judges with its unique mixture of buttered sautéed chanterelle mushrooms, sea asparagus, spring salmon, spot prawns, cold smoked coho, dehydrated huckleberries and Tow Hill garlic. The competition was held in partnership with Gwaii Trust, Northern Savings Credit Union and Haida Wild. Mike Racz the General Manager of Haida Gwaii Community Futures presented Mr. Peebles with the $1,000 prize at the Tlell Fall Fair, Aug. 2. Mr. Peebles said he was in disbelief when he was told he had won Seafood Wars. “I thought I had some stiff competition. I didn’t know what I was up against,” he said.It took Mr. Peebles two weeks to develop his seafood burger. “When I cook I like to cook from the heart, it is good not to overwork things. Just let it flow,” he explained Seafood Wars wasn’t just a recipe competition. Part of the contest was the to make the product ready for market with a marketing plan. “I weighed everything so I know what was in it to be reproduced exactly how it was.” He had cooked the burger on the barbecue and on a frying pan, he found that the barbecue produced the best burger.Community Futures and Haida Wild will be working with Mr. Peebles to market his product for production. “I look forward to working with Community Futures and Haida Wild in order to market and process this,” Mr. Peebles said.
