Well that went fast! After the wettest and coldest spring we can remember, this has been an epic summer. So much sunshine, heat and great fish throughout the last couple of months… and it is far from over yet:)

Wild salmon is running strong.
The B.C. and Alaskan salmon runs have been stronger than predicted this year, with only the spring salmon fishery being affected by a small run size. We are currently still in prime salmon season, with almost daily arrivals of wild coho, sockeye and sometimes spring salmon. Whether on the grill, in the pan or slow baked in the oven, fresh wild salmon is one of our favourites. When you’re in next, ask our team how to best prepare it!

Lakefish is perfect.
The team at Taylor fish in Wheatley Ontario has had a busy summer with a consistent harvest of absolutely beautiful pickerel, perch and bass. We see deliveries of this bounty a couple of times per week. We’ve been loving pickerel on the grill and bass in our tacos all summer long.

Smoked and cured.
We are proud to smoke and cure all of our own fish in store, with fantastic results. Not sure if you know, but we do offer smoked fish boards (fish charcuterie = fishcuterie) for pickup in store. A luscious selection of cured and smoked, house pickles, Blackbird breads and Evelyn’s Crackers. To order, just send us an email: smoked fish please!

That’s right, our new class schedule is set and open for registration. We send an advanced notification to our mailing list before we publish anything to social media, so now is your chance to book that class you’ve been waiting for! Our classes include munchies, 3-4 courses of incredible food, all instruction, with recipes emailed after class.
Hooked classes

We also love teaching private classes on any available evening. Book a private class with your friends and have Hooked to yourself for the night! We require a minimum of 10 guests and a maximum of 14 guests.
