Going Wild with Poppy Seed Fougasse

go directly to the recipe

summary: recipe for wild fougasse with poppy seeds baked on the barbecue; grilling Artic char; the wonders of lemons; it’s strawberry season!

When we were discussing what bread to make on the barbecue for dinner, we realized that it had been way too long since we’d had poppy seed bread!

I love this bread!! It’s just a little bit sweet but not cloyingly so. And it’s beautifully soft inside yet nicely crispy on the outside.

Of course! Poppy seed fougasse! What could be better? We decided to really splash out and, instead of salmon, we would get a piece of wild Artic Char – Ocean Wise, of course.

Even though we still have a jar of active dry yeast in the fridge, we are now loathe to use it. So I decided to alter our poppy seed bread recipe.
