Also known as: Walleye
Deep in Canada's pristine freshwater lakes, especially in Manitoba and Ontario, you'll find the graceful pickerel gliding through the waters. Often referred to as walleye in many parts of the country (erroneously; walleye is a separate species), this fish is distinguished by a unique olive-green to golden colour with a white underbelly.
Pickerel presents a succulent, sweet taste and a firm yet flaky texture. Its delightful flavour is often described as one of the freshest among freshwater fish, making it a top choice for those diving into the world of seafood or even seasoned fish lovers. The taste is rich yet not overpowering, and it’s an excellent choice for anyone who doesn’t care for the briny notes of saltwater species.
This delectable shellfish is an aquaculture success story — and a delicious addition to your family menu whether steamed, boiled, roasted, or grilled.
