Domenic's Fish Market

Domenic's is at the back on the left hand side of the St. Lawrence market. He has a great selection of fresh whole fish, lobster (both steamed and live), smoked fish, shrimp and scallops, prepared seafood salads, calamari, cut fish in steaks and fillets, fresh and salt water prawns and a whole selection fresh frozen seafood products.

Our favourite is the fresh whole fish selection. We usually buy a red snapper to grill, between 1 and 2 lbs, this is a good size for 2 people. Another favourite of ours is the artic char. Baked in salt in the oven the mild flavour of the char is preserved. Look for clear bright eyes, red gills and no fishy smell. Ask one of the attendants to clean the fish. Specify if you want the head and tail on or off. Serving a whole fish at table looks great but serving may require some practice.

For a special treat we buy giant prawns. About 5-6" long, 4 pieces will cost about $20.00. Butterfly the prawns, toss with garlic, chilies, oil, and lot's of salt and grill about 5 minutes or until the meat is opaque. Served with steamed rice, bok choy and a spicy Asian sauce, you have a nice light meal in just about twenty minutes.
