For the real Greek experience, you first pick out the fish from the iced ones on display in any taverna worth its lemons. Then it's whisked away for grilling and comes back to the table, where an accomplished waiter bones it – a formidable task if you're not an expert, especially when diners are awaiting their portions. Our filleted fish is easier on the cook, and since getting fish from the Mediterranean is chancy across Canada, we're recommending pickerel. Other fish can be just as tasty, so choose whatever's freshest.
