Good smoked fish?

I did not try places like Euromix in Oakland, but did find ducktrap smoked (dyed) haddock at Tokyo Fish in Berkeley (which is worth a trip if you like fish, full stop). It was fine, frozen so a bit watery, and made a very tasty cullen skink. At the same time, it is not at all the quality of proper Scottish smoked fish. I do plan on getting more this winter, because cullen skink is really a necessity for me at least once or twice in the rainy winter months. Good luck, Scotsgranny!

Success - Tokyo Fish had Ducktrap River smoked haddock! Note, they do not necessarily know that it's there, you have to push them to look, but they had several frozen sides.

I am intrigued by and will try Euromix soon! Thanks again for your help!

Thanks, all! I really do need haddock, which is not a local fish. If I cannot find some packaged, I may ask a friend with a smoker to help out!

I'm just back from a family visit in Scotland, armed with several Scottish cookbooks. Now all I need is some good quality smoked fish, particularly haddock and big, fat, mackerels.

Anybody know of fish shops, preferably in the East Bay, where I can get fresh smoked fishies, or high-quality packaged ones? I know I can get smoked mackerel at places like BBowl, but the stuff from the plastic pouches is often rubbery and chewy - fresher stuff would be better.
