Where to Buy Lox Trimmings in the GTA?

Lox trimmings are great (and inexpensive!) for things like lox, eggs and onions and homemade lox spread. Anyone know where they sell them?

  1. Kristapsons is your best bet. Call ahead though, as they run out quickly on weekends.

    Otherwise, Loblaws carry decent ones in 150g containers for $4 or so.

      Yummy Market. Can be very good and cheap too, but a bit of luck in what you get.
      Don't get more than one package until you have tried one.

        yes, the yummy market semga tidbits are the best price I've seen around.

        Thanks HC, I'll give Kristapsons is relatively close so I'll give them a shot.

      3. Kiva's at their Bath/Steeles location certainly sells it. Grew up on the stuff.

        While we're on the topic, I'd need to beat myself up if I didn't mention how bloody easy and inexpensive it is to make lox at home.

          True. I've cured salmon before, but I don't always have the fridge space and sometimes when the craving hits, you don't want to wait a few days to make some. Plus I have no place to smoke anything.

        2. No Frills has them in the seafood freezer.
          I didn't notice the price.
