Looking for smoked kippers on Van. Is.
I found a local store that sells frozen smoked kippers. I bought a couple in a plastic bag. Thawed them and poached them. GAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!
They were nothing like I remembered. These were completely tasteless and had ZERO texture. No 'smoky' flavor. They had come from Scotland. Never again. Just one of those childhood 'tastes' that is no longer available. At least not around here.
even if you don't come over to the westside --- how about ph this shop in Vanc (on Dunbar, near 41st ave) - they might have some info re: victoria or ...

there must be a brit theme shop *even a butcher shop - in your neighborhood? - it is amazing what specialty products they have on hand - mine has special sauerkraut from the german heartland of Ontario, for eg
maybe that would be a lead to your sm kppr
