Our "local" selection for this week is tender whitefish, which thrives in the cold deep waters of the Great Lakes.
Whitefish is a reliable all-around fish. It is flavorful, thick, rich, and versatile. You can use just about any recipe that calls for a white fish. Even a simple sauté with lemon and butter produces a great impression. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Low mercury. Kosher.

Mahi mahi is also called dolphinfish or "dorado." Dolphinfish is not to be confused with dolphin (which as you know is a mammal, not a fish). In Hawaiian Mahi Mahi means "extra strong," a description referring to its swimming ability.
Mahi Mahi's pinkish translucent flesh has a sweet, delicate flavor, moderately firm texture, and large, moist flakes. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Moderate mercury level. Kosher.
