Where can I purchase sea cucumber (fresh & dried)?


I would like to know where I can purchase sea cucumber (fresh & dried) for home cooking in Montreal? I know it's possible to purchase them (dried ones) in Chinatown. I would like to do some price comparison. Thank you in advance for your help.

  1. I don't know if taste/texture is affected but I saw some frozen ones at the G&D supermarket in Swatow plaza yesterday.

      thanks Virgile. I thought I had replied. Found a source through Chinese friends. They are dried version that you will have to soak them. Very good for you. :-) It's full of proteins.

    2. Try Marche Hawai, in Ville Saint-Laurent. They have the largest selection of asian groceries on the island.
