We were recently in BC to watch the Salmon Run around Salmon Arm, when we came across Fisherman Direct Seafood and decided to stop in as we saw some billboards for this place for fish and chips. We wanted to eat seafood so it seemed like the perfect match.
We started with their Calamari which was wonderful! It set the bar high for our expectations as it was lightly battered, tender and fresh. The calamari tasted great we barely touched their tartar sauce and we needed nothing.
I decided to go for their Halibut Burger and I got the seafood chowder as a side instead of more fried food. The halibut burger was so delicious, it was sweet, light, and perfectly fried. The burger didn’t have much besides lettuce and tartar sauce – and it was perfect. The seafood chowder was a bit salty but tons of flavour, tons of seafood and quite hearty.
My husband ordered a Once Piece Cod and Chips and you get 2 sides. He got yam fries and onion rings – mostly because those are my favourites. We really enjoyed the cod, again, it was quite light, portions were large, lightly battered – crispy outside and wonderful on the inside.
We really enjoyed our experience here. Everything seemed to be so fresh and made to order. We even bought some candied salmon on our way out and got a recipe card for their seafood chowder. I can’t wait to try it!
