Salmon in Vancouver
I live in Japan but am a Vancouverite.
I know, I know, we are the go to place for salmon but I've got a Japanese friend staying and he wants salmon. Everything seems to be done in some kind of Japanese style, teriyaki or soy sauce or yuzu, etc.
All wonderful, but is there a place where we can get just a regular salmon dinner with the
old mashed potatoes, etc.?
Joe Fortes does a cedar planked salmon but it has bourbon sauce. In fact, most places I can think of all have cedar planked! A Kettle of Fish has a grilled sockeye, but it's served with spatzel of all things!
Like fmed said, Cannery has Salmon Wellington - sounds pretty old school!
The William Tell has: Potato Crusted B.C. Wild Salmon Filet On a bed of sautéed spinach with a lemon cream sauce and seasonal vegetables.
And Coast has wild grilled salmon served with lobster mashed potatoes, baby carrots, asparagus, citrus beurre blanc
I'm a fan of the Fish House in Stanley Park for just such a craving. They do a variety of fish, including salmon, "simply prepared" on their "Fresh Today Menu" http://www.fishhousestanleypark.com/m...
and as a bonus they have the Cannery's Salmon Wellington, if you fancy trying that.
