GSI Wild Salmon

Gourmet Secrets' deluxe salmon selections adhere to the highest standards of quality and food safety. Sockeye, Coho, Pink and Atlantic salmon are all available online at www.gourmetsecrets.ca!A flaky yet firm fish, full of delectable ocean flavor, renowned around the world and found right here at home in Canada… it’s gotta be salmon! One of the most popular food fishes in the world, salmon is beneficial for human health as it contains a high quantity of protein, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D. Prepared in numerous ways from cedar-smoked to rolled with king crab and cream cheese, or grilled plain with lemon juice, salt and pepper, this flavorful fish is welcome at dinner tables across the world.

Salmon are fish in the Salmonidae family, which are typically born in fresh water and migrate to salt water as they mature. They have the uncanny ability to return to the exact lake in which they were born, generation after generation, a homing sense primarily powered by smell memory! When they return from off the coast of BC to their inland spawning lakes, the salmon runs are so massive that some say you can walk across the river on a bridge made of salmon! These also present a prize opportunity for bears, wolves and other predators to catch as much salmon as they can- salmon fishermen have also enjoyed the plentiful bounty they catch from these yearly salmon runs.

Increasingly, however, the importance of keeping a large salmon population in the rivers is fueling the increase of aquacultured, or farmed salmon, in Canadian markets. While our BC salmon products come entirely from wild stocks, our Atlantic salmon selections are farmed. The intricacy of salmon farming is not lost on Gourmet Secrets, and we ensure to source our product from the highest-quality aquacultures following the highest safety and feed standards. As with all our seafood and fish products, our salmon selections adhere to the Safe Quality Food Level 2 guidelines which are some of the strictest in the country.

This marvelous fish is available in a myriad of prepared and raw fashions for you at Gourmet Secrets’ online store. Make salmon a part of your diet today with Gourmet Secrets’ help!

GSI Deluxe Bacon

Thick strips of bacon on a plate... what's better than that divine smell in the morning?

Breakfast: the most important meal of the day. In our busy lives, we rarely have time for a decent breakfast anymore, but once you wake up to the wonderful smell of Gourmet Secrets’ deluxe bacon throughout the house, you’ll never want to skip it again! Our bacon from 100% free range pork is deluxe trim, double maple and big on taste, always a treat to have around whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Bacon is usually made from pork belly cured in brine or dry salt for many hours, then smoked and sliced into thick strips that produce the streaky bacon we know and love. Bacon is often enjoyed beside eggs, potatoes and toast and is very popular as a sandwich meat, being a key ingredient in the preparation of a BLT. If you prefer something greener and healthier, cook up your bacon until crispy, chop it up into small chunks or bits, and use it as a garnish for your salad! Often very popular in dressings and sauces when rendered into tiny bits, you can make your own bacon ranch dressing by simply combining mayonnaise, white vinegar, parsley and bacon bits! Bacon also features as a garnish for many of our products, whether it is wrapped around our filet mignon, chicken breasts or scallops, or stuffed into our premade baked potatoes. Why not try Gourmet Secrets’ deluxe bacon in your own dishes?

If you love bacon, don’t settle for anything less than the best. Get some of Gourmet Secrets’ Deluxe Bacon Strips today at http://www.gourmetsecrets.ca!

Nova Scotia Lobster

A nice red lobster on its plate with lettuce and lemon garnish: perfect for your next meal! Call us at 1-877-254-0222 to get yours today!

What is more regal than a fully-cooked lobster served with melted butter and a variety of accoutrements on the table? Not very much! Gourmet Secrets is proud to bring you live lobster right at your doorstep for free in the Gourmet Secrets Live Lobster Festival, ready for the pot and then the table! But how much do you know about lobster, besides its delectable flavor and tender texture?

Nova Scotia lobster belongs to the species Homarus americanus, which makes its home in the warm waters of the Atlantic, from the Labrador in Canada all the way to Cape Hatteras in North Carolina, though it is uncommon south of New Jersey. With members of the species measuring up to 64 cm and weighing in at over 20 kilograms at times, it is the heaviest and one of the longest crustaceans in the world. Because it is a crustacean, it was once considered food for the poor; today, lobster is the example of fine dining, and highly sought after for its great taste and texture.

Contrary to what would be expected, lobsters are not naturally red: their shell contains a mixture of pigments which gives them a green and brown color. When it is cooked, almost all the pigments get degraded by the heat, except for the one which makes the shell red, thus making the lobster a rich red color once it is ready to eat. However, in the wild, lobsters can come in a variety of fantastic colors such as bright blue, stark yellow, and even albino white!

The traditional way of cooking lobster is with a live boil: simply drop the lobster into a pot of boiling water head first and boil it until its shell becomes completely bright red. Then pluck it out of the water and serve it on a plate with lobster crackers, clarified butter and some mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables to enjoy on the side!

Gourmet Secrets wants to bring you your very own live lobster for your dinner feast, so come on: call right now at 1-877-254-0222 and get your Lobster Festival Pack today!

GSI Scampi Tails

The smallest member of the lobster family, already poached for you: just serve these delectable scampi tails and enjoy!

Gourmet Secrets has no shortage of delectable seafood selections for any occasion. From shrimp to scallops, from lobster to king crab, we’ve got enough ocean treasures to satisfy every taste. But what about scampi? These lesser-known seafood treats are some of the smallest members of the lobster family: while they are the size of shrimp, they have the flavor of lobster, and are Montréal’s favorite seafood!

Scampi tails come from the Norway lobster, Nephrops norvegicus, the most important commercial crustacean in Europe. They are slim and orange-colored, measuring up to 20 cm in length usually: exceptional individuals reach about 25 cm! They live in semi-permanent burrows under the sand where they make their home during the day, coming out at night to catch food. These burrows mean that only parts of the sea floor are suitable for their habitation, with large areas of inhospitable terrain separating over 30 populations in the North-Eastern Atlantic. This also makes Norway lobster populations easier to manage and fish, since individual adults rarely travel more than a few hundred meters.

Once the scampi are fished, their tails are cut to create GSI Scampi Tails, and are immediately flash-frozen afterward, in order to lock in the flavor and juices and ensure their freshness. Their delicate texture and sweet flavor make them a unique delicacy for your guests and family. As with all our seafood, Gourmet Secrets Scampi Tails follow the strict Safe Quality Food Level 2 safety standards, which ensure you get the very best, healthiest and wholesome seafood from us.

Whether you broil them in the oven with your favorite herbs and spices or poach them lightly in a white wine stock, scampi are sure to delight at your next occasion. Try something new with GSI Scampi Tails today!
