This week's wild catch comes from Goderich (Ontario) Cove on Lake Huron. (Goderich incidentally bills itself as Canada's prettiest town.) This trout is currently in a recovery period after a dramatic decline in the mid-1900s. The fillets have a yellowish color and are thick, with a flaky flesh. It is very versatile--it can be baked, sautéed, poached, or grilled. Seafood Watch rates it a “Good Alternative.” Low mercury. Kosher.
