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 the simplest of preparations, a quick sauté with lemon and butter, will satisfy completely. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Low mercury. Kosher.
