Sashimi grade salmon in toronto/scarborough area

Where can i buy sashimi grade salmon in toronto or scarborough area? I know the chinese supermarkets and grocery stores like no frils, food basic etc. have salmon but i dont think their quality is at the point where it's good enough for raw consumption. Any help would be great!

Oh I love that place... splurge on a $20 take out bento box of sushi... They use really nice fish and even throw in some uni sushi.
Or you can buy a box of uni for $30... and then pig out @ home with a bowl of sushi rice. =D
UNI DON!

back to question at hand

I buy the salmon from Costco. Then I freeze it in the back of my freezer for 7 days with the settings on high.
I defrost the day I want to eat and consume it immediately.

I consume it in various ways.

-As sashimi!
-cold smoked for about an hour in my electric smoker with hickory wood chips. Cold smoked salmon!
-Seared with a blow torch. Then garnish with a bit of lime juice, green onion, sesame oil, and pepper.
-Seared with a blow torch. Then slice it and eat.
-Nigiri. I never got the technique down... So I cheat. I use one of those molds from One's. Looks good and since its home made... I can use a MONSTER piece of salmon on top with a tiny piece of rice. Rice is amazing with sushi... But most people hate sushi rice b/c many shops cheap out and use too much.

Diana's Seafood. You can buy fillets or whole salmon.

I bought a whole salmon last week. 8.99/lb for regular atlantic salmon and 9.99 for an organic chinook salmon from BC. I bought the 9.99/lb one and it came to $92.
