Oysters and Pickerel

Dinner from the Billingsgate Seafood Market.  Pan fried pickerel (Manitoba Walleye?) with a Cobs bread country grain roll.  The seafood market and bakery are almost next door to each other. Perfect. I had the pickerel for the first time earlier this week at Big Fish.  It must be in season as they have it at the market.  It is a very delectable white fish and sustainable from what I hear. There are some concerns about mercury content, so eat in moderation.

The oysters were from Komo Gway in BC. I prefer west coast oysters if eating them raw, they seem to be less gritty than the east coast ones. Broiled with bread crumbs, butter and cheese… the second best way to eat oysters.
