Smoked Haddock in Toronto?

Otherwise known as finnan haddie. I know it's probably available at several fish markets, but googling it didn't find me anything and I don't want to have to telephone a bunch of places. Prefer downtown/midtown. Thanks!

  1. I've seen it at SLM but it's the dyed stuff with artificial flavor added. Last time I saw the real thing was frozen at long-gone Marks and Spencer. Mike's Fish might be able to source it.

    1. Sobey's with a large busy fish counter has frozen smoked cod and haddock. My local source is Brock Rd., Pickering.

      1. In an Industrial area around Steeles and Weston Rd. is a Smoked Fish Factory called Central-Epicure, 501 Garyray Drive, M9L 1P9, www.centralepicure.com, phone 416 745-4323! I have bought various smoked fish there, but check and call first!

        1. Thanks, Jar. Link's dead, though. Are they still afloat?

            Never tried link, phone them for info. They have beeen there for years and you can smell the smoke at the door and office. Last trip I bought some Ciscoes, Salmon and Trout, all Smoked!

              The link has an unneeded comma at the end.


          2. Yoy might also try North Fish at the corner of Six Point+Shawbridge just east of Kipling south of the TTC overpass. Nice place with more of an E. European accent.

            1. Thanks all! Mike's has it, but Central Epicure does not. Sounds interesting though--I may check it out at some point.
