    If you spell it Finnan Haddie, you are more likely to find it on the net when you do a search in Boston. Finn and Haddie sound like the name of a British Vaudville duo from the 30's, I like it!

      The best Finnan Haddie (previous OP is correct in her spelling), would be at Turner's in Melrose.

        I have not had it, but I'm pretty sure it was on the menu at Ten Tables recently.

          we were surprisingly pleased with the finnan haddie at Anthony's Pier 4, an outdated classic restaurant near the ICA.

            Does anyone know of a fish market that sells it? Growing up I ate it often, and I remember it was just from the supermarket.

              Turner's often has smoked haddock for sale (the one in Melrose). Also, my husband has found it in the "wrapped" food sections of most deli departments.

              Captain Marden's in Wellesley sell it all prepared in a cheesy sauce as a frozen entree. Ocassionally they sell the smoked haddock to make it with. If you call they probably can get it for you. There prepared version is quite good. Love finnan haddie!!
              PS the Roche Brothers Supermarket also carries Captain Marden;s prepared finnan haddie.
