looking for frozen quebec mackerel fillets
I used to eat these once a week and get them from my local Provigo in the Plateaul. They haven't stocked it for a while, and when I asked staff, they looked at me as if I am crazy. Anyone has seen them in any of the Plateau stores? They are sort of a staple, so the closer I can find the better; but I am filling to venture out just for them too, if needed. They are cheap, local, sustainable and delicious; if only I can find them.
I found a promo web site, but couldn't find a contact info/form to ask for retail locations . Here is how the package looks, in case someone can visually identify: http://www.maquereauduquebec.com/
My tummy will thank you.
Either call CAP SUR MER at 418-986-2710 or Unipêche Aristocrat at (418) 752-6700 they are the distributors.
Would other types of frozen mackerel do? Theres some common ones from Portugal - I can't remember the brand names (they also have sardines, stickleback, mullet, etc). Not sure, but I'm thinking Sakaris Brothers or the haggard grocery (don't know name) next to Cinema L'Amour have a variety of these frozen fish.
I prefer the Quebec ones, but yes any mackerel would be better than none :)
I've cooked those frozen Portuguese sardines before. Good stuff, but lots of work to defrost and clean them out because I like to grill them completely gutted. But I haven't seen the mackerels. I'll check my Portuguese owned local grocer.
