Need help sourcing fish for gefilte fish

lumpster | Mar 28, 2011 01:26 PM

This is my first post to the boards, so please, be gentle!
I need some help... For years my mother and I have wanted to make our own gefilte fish for Passover. This year we are dead set to do it, but have come up against a very basic issue: where to buy the fish??
The three types of fish we will need are whitefish, pike, and carp or buffalo. The carp/buffalo can be found pretty easily at any of the large Asian grocers (Lee Lee, Super L, or Mekong Plaza). But where to get the rest?
If anyone has any information leading to the capture of these fugitive fish, it is greatly appreciated! Even more appreciated would be the name of a fish monger that not only has the fish, but we can frequent anytime - always looking for good sources of high quality food.
