Does anyone know where I can buy fresh (not frozen) Finnan Haddie?
If you can get to a farmers' market where Nantucket Wild Gourmet has a stand, you can get a great smoked haddock that is fresh and can be used where you might use finnan Haddie. I used it for a chowder I was trying to copy after I had a version at Hamersley's Bistro.
It was delicious. I know he is at Harvard, Davis Square, Prudential, Copley, and Brookline but you can probably contact him through the site and preorder it for pickup. I don't know if he has it every day. There is also a list of stores on the site and he might be able to get it to one of those for you.
