Itchy mouth and lips from wild caught salmon
My boyfriend and I have been primal for almost a week now. It is amazing!
However, tonight we baked a filet of wild-caught USA sock-eye salmon. I drizzled a sauce of whole grain mustard and maple syrup and salt on it.
It made the roof of my mouth and my lips itch like crazy! And the roof of my mouth around my soft palate turned bright red.
We had to throw this big expensive piece of fish away!
What could this be caused from?
did the same thing happen to your BF? What else did you have to eat? Could be an oral allergy...read more here:

Have you ever used that sauce before?
I'm no doctor, but that sure sounds like an allergic reaction to me. Pretty sure you can't be allergic to salt, and that leaves 3 potential sources. And I hate to say it, but my money's on the salmon. I have a buddy who's allergic to tuna, and only tuna. Can eat everything else without problem, including salmon, all shellfish, mollusks, bivalves, etc... But tuna gives him the exact symptoms you describe.

She went to the other salmon supplier at the market the next week, bought his product, and no trouble at all.
Interesting... Damned solution is not a solution at all!
