The recipe for Roasted Red Pepper and Pomegranate Sauce over Pan-Seared Tofu ("Saucy Sauces") in your February issue calls for pomegranate molasses. I've never heard of this. Where can I find it, or how can I make it?

You can find this tart syrup in Middle Eastern and specialty stores. Or make your own: Gently boil 100 percent pomegranate juice until it reduces to a syrupy consistency.

All salmon are not created equal
Cheers to you for your sustainable-seafood article ("Is Eating Seafood Sustainable?" January 2007). I'm a salmon gillnetter in Alaska. When recently marketing my catch, I discovered that many restaurants that claim to offer the finest-quality seafood are still serving Atlantic farm-raised salmon. It's important for the public to know that farm-raised salmon is no match for healthy, wild salmon.
