Salmon in Vancouver

repartee Aug 9, 2008 07:17 PM

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.?

    It's hard to find anything in this town without an Asian influence. Off the top of my head, The Cannery may have something old-school.

      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.

        Thanks all for replying so far.

        Joe Fortes doesn't look too bad nor does Kettle of Fish.
