Maple-Glazed Salmon in Toronto
Have a friend coming to T.O. (from the states) and she's looking to have maple-glazed salmon. Supposedly many people not from this country view this as a Canadian specialty. Anyway, I know Toronto isn't a mecca for seafood, but does anyone know where I can find salmon prepared in this fashon?
They have something called Eskimo candy downstairs at the south St.Lawrence Market where they sell caviar, that I believe is glazed with maple syrup. They have another prepared salmon that I think is brought in from Nova Scotia that is very moist and delicious. Both are costly though.
I think that the maple glazed salmon you are looking for is referred to as "salmon candy" and is very big in the west. It seems every second stall at the Greenville market in Vancouver has it. Obviously it is very popular and I found it reasonably priced. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for Ontario! I have seen it downstairs at the St. Lawrence market across from Mustachios Italian sandwiches, but it appeared not to very popular and I found it considerably more expensive.
Good luck! Report your findings!
