Where to buy Goat Shanks in the downtown core?
The suggestion of Sanagan's is a good one, probably also one of the butchers at the St. Lawrence Market. But be prepared to pre-order them whomever you wind up dealing with, even places that regularly carry goat meat won't necessarily have shanks as a stock item as they usually get broken down into stew meat in the usual butchering.
Sanagan's didn't have goat but they directed me to Kensington Meats where there was plenty of goat on hand. I was advised by the butcher to buy legs and she trimmed them into large 'shank-like' cuts.
We had the goat tagine last night and it was brilliant!
Thanks for the advise - I doubt I would have thought to pop into Kensignton had you not mentioned it.
