Need smoked whitefish salad shipped to Vancouver!

So I have a friend who is A.B.C. (American Born Chinese) who LOVES Jewish style smoked whitefish salad and he can't get it anywhere in Vancouver, B.C. in Canada. I've been looking and thought I'd found it, but they won't ship there. Does anyone know of a supplier who will help this starving Buddhist???? Please help!

        that's another great suggestion

      2. I live in the US Virgin Islands and just found at our Cost-U-Less 2 lb tubs of SWS made by Acme Smoked Fish Co of Brooklyn NY, Cost-U-Less is part of Costco, do you have those in the Great White North, eh? This sald apparently keeps longer than the expensive deli made(has some presevative, must be refrigerated, but even after shipping to VI(probably at least 7day by ship I bought on May 7 with sell by date of May23, your other alternative is to order the smoked whitefish(keeps longer for shipping and make your own salad, I believe it is just mayo, mustard salt and sweetener, and probably everbody has their own proportions or additions. Acme is pretty good to keep up my habit, but the place where I got hooked in NE Philly-the Casino Deli makes a sald that schmeared on their fresh baked onion bagels is to die for-OY VEY! Good luck on your search

        1. Hey Marcy
          Lake Superior Fish Company sells Smoked Whitefish and i believe they can ship to Canada,eh. Google them and try it, from there you just have to experiment with the other ingredients, mayo, mustard white pepper, lemon juice to get the kind of spread desired, some recipes use cream cheese, but it is basically the smoked fish that makes the salad,your friend might even like the smoked fish on crackers better, brings back memories of picnics on the rocky shores of the Big lake, I'm going back this summer to eat some al fresco-Yum Great place for a vacation-the North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota or the Apostle Islands in Northwest Wisconsin, Paradise North, lived there for 20 years before moving to Virgin Islands, America's Paradise

          1. Has your friend tried Kaplan's Deli in Vancouver? They have it listed "when available" on their menu.
