There’s a lot to love about seafood, from smokey salmon to crispy calamari and fish tacos. But when it comes to perfecting a seafood dish at home, it can seem like a daunting — not to mention smelly — task.
That’s why some professionals are hoping to demystify some common fish phobias with a new weekly cooking class right here in Ottawa.
School of Fish guides amateur chefs with a range of seafood specialities, all under the instruction of such experts as Pelican Market and Grill executive chef Ben Baird and seafood expert Nathan Rogers.
Here’s an at-home version of mussels in white wine cream sauce Baird shared on CBC Ottawa’s All In A Day:

Narcity – Updated on May 02 2018
When planning a night out in Ottawa, there’s no doubt that we gravitate towards places in the ByWard Market. Whether you think of specific restaurants or just the general area, heading to the Market is usually the first option when it comes to grabbing a bite.
Sure, it’s a great place to check out during the weekend, but sometimes we just get bored of staying in the same area. There are so many incredible spots to eat at that aren’t in the ByWard Market. It’s time to try some new restaurants in our city!

That’s the concept behind Taste for Hope, a successful and popular foodie event that supports Shepherds of Good Hope, one of the largest organizations in our city dedicated to meeting the needs of some of the most vulnerable people — homeless women and men.

Pelican co-owner Jim Foster is hooked on the seafood business
Ottawa Business Journal – May 15, 2019
On the Ottawa seafood scene, Jim Foster is what you’d call a big fish. For years now, the 55-year-old entrepreneur has been the friendly face of Pelican Seafood Market and Grill, a small business that he co-owns with his brother-in-law, Marc Roy.
The fish market and adjoining 60-seat seafood restaurant remain tucked away in a nondescript strip mall south of downtown. Yet, on any given day, the place is bustling with a community of customers – serving between 10,000 and 11,000 people each month.
