One hallmark of the Pacific Northwest of North America is plants growing on plants. Maybe this is true elsewhere I typically roam, but here the parasites (or whatever the hitchhikers are) are varied and visible.
Another hallmark of the PacNW to me is salmon. Here we prepped it with a mushroom sauce that was a typical soy-ginger-garlic-honey mixture, with an extra boost from mushrooms. Easy, tasty!
