I had some smoked Alaskan black cod at The Shore Club downtown last week and it is my new favourite for best tasting fish, absolutely amazing!

I agree they are very delicious if they are smoked. Unfortunately alot of the so called Smoked Alaskan black cod sold are not truly smoked. They have an artificial dye injected into them giving them a false impression they are smoked. Leave it in the fridge for a couple of days; the dye will leak out of the fish.

That's pretty gross!  Thanks for the heads up as I was thinking of picking some up and trying to cook it like it was done at the restataunt. I guess its like the "chicken" at subway that has the black "grilling" lines painted on!

for me smoked maple glaze mackeral, had to my best tastes... but I like finnin haddie , smoked haddock, beerbatter haddock & chips, Arctic char & pickeral are all welcome on my plate. Deep fried herring was also a treat. not to forget good natuaral smoked kippers. Not a great fan of Salmon. be easier to say what I don't like.

hard to beat sockeye for flavor, coho and red springs are great to, specialy when fresh from the salt chuck.they all  have there own special flavor, depends how you cook them.

Sockeye are good as well as a nice Chinook. But I think Halibut is my favorite.

Toprod. Your # 1 pick is spot on. For the people how have never tried Pickerel. Oh boy you are missing out.

Man do I miss the good'ol shore lunch when I was a kid at the family retreat in the summer! Over the years when I have made it back home. The first couple of days is spent with family followed by a week long trip with the boys northwest of Thunder Bay!

Camp fire, cast iron pan, filleted Pickerel in a beer batter and an ice cold beer! You don't realize how bad the mosquitoes and black flies are 
because you are to busy stuffing your face! ;D

Another one of my favorites is Carp from the sloughs in ladner.. Here is my favorite recipe:

1.two fillets of carp (prefferably from ladner sloughs)
2.a bowl of mayonaise
3. 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

    Okay so first, mix up the fillets in the bowl of mayo until they are fully covered with a glaze of mayo......next, lay the two fillets on a large plate and sprinkle them with the cheddar cheese sprinkle as much as you like, i prefer lots on mine. Next thing your going to do is put the plate with the fillets on it into the microwave and microwave for 30 minutes or until the fish is fully cooked. Let cool then serve, i hope you enjoy this dish as much as i do. (it goes great with a warm curdled glass of milk)
