back when i was working on the RAV line on Cambie street, there was a surveyor who hustled smoked Salmon. His name was Tom and everyone said he was a crack head, but his fish was nice and fresh! it came professional packaged too! he would run around the job site during lunch hustling it to all the guys...good times.. :D

Hey Stu.

The best consistent high grade brand out there is Nanuk. I believe Choices and several vendors on Granville Island sell it for sure. The is another Norwegian brand that also produces a very high quality Gravlax. If you are looking for lox though, go with Nanuk brand. This comes from many years of experience working for Albion Fisheries :). I still have many contacts in the seafood industry.

Good luck on the hunt!

Best Regards,

Stuart

ROTFL! Stuart! You used to work for a seafood supplier and now you raise fish? Is there any chance that you lost your job because you were releasing captured salmon back into the wild on your breaks?

Bruces Market (Seafresh Fish) also does his own smoking (I forgot about his product). They smoke product themselves and even have double smoked varieties (his products are more like a jerky consistency or an Indian Candy (nugget style). They are NOT a lox style product. But they do carry quality product indeed. They may even carry Nanuk brand. Just phone and ask. Here's the link

BTW, don't buy the cheap stuff and never buy the gift boxes in foil room temperature pouches. They are horrid :eek:.

Best Regards,

Stuart

Yeah Maureen I've been around water and fish (edible and pet types) my entire life. I am also a water sign (Cancer). Go figure ;)!

Oceanmaster Foods in Maple Ridge. The lox and indian candy are wicked. I get them to smoke some of my sport caught fish every year.

Because alot of them are crap!
Sorry I disagree with this entirely, When I do my own it is oily. Mine is not crap. When you smoke or wind dry all the oils have to come out some how. It is is done naturally then there is no way to eliminate the oil.
