Looking for smoked scallops in Toronto

I was looking for a recipe for cauliflower soup and I found one in the latest Eric Ripert cookbook that called for smoked scallops. Has anyone seen these in Toronto? I looked at the St Lawrence Market but didn't see any around.
I used to get them from Pisces, a fish shop on Yonge in Rosedale. That was a few years ago, before it was bought out by Mike's Fish. To be honest, they were very dry. I would suggest you look up some recipes on hot smoking with wood chips in your oven. That way you could control how you want them. When a scallop is fully cooked through, it loses moisture and texture quickly.
