ISO dried smoked salmon

Hey folks,

I'm looking for smoked salmon-- the dried stuff that comes in boxes and they sell in souvenir shops at the airport. Anywhere I can get it where I won't have to pay the usual airport premium?

And any recommendations on brands?

  1. I think you are lookig for "Indian Candy". Or is that "Native Candy" ?

    1. Costco is the first store that comes to mind. Otherwise, many Chinese supermarket/herbal stores carry those because they are popular souvenirs among expats.

        Costco sounds like the place to go to get them at a reasonable price. Thanks.

      2. My grocery sells them - It's a little convenience store at the corner of Bloor and Bartlett (just east of Dufferin).

          This smoked salmon is very convenient since it doesn't require refrigeration -- but have you actually tasted the stuff? I would rate canned salmon quite highly compared to it!

        2. Have you ever tried Salmon Jerky. Soo Jerky makes a version that I quite like. The web site says it's marinated, dried, and barbecued. A bit more expensive than their regular beef and pork jerky. I've bought mine at Foody's on Bamburgh Circle, but it's likely available at other Asian stores like T&T. Canadian product.
