The Great Lakes
Considered one of the most desirable fresh water fish, whitefish (aka lake whitefish) is found in cold, deep-water lakes and rivers in the US and Canada, with a substantial population in the Great Lakes.
A relative of the salmon, this fish has a mild (yet rich), somewhat salmon-esque flavor, a medium-firm texture, and a large flake size.
These fresh fillets have only been harvested from trap-net caught whitefish, which are considered very sustainable.
Store whitefish fillets in the coldest part of your refrigerator.
Up to one week.

Whitefish fillets are delicious sautéed, broiled, baked, pan fried or smoked. They’re also delicious in chowders.
Whitefish’s mild flavor pairs well with herbs (particularly chives, oregano, thyme, marjoram and dill), lemon, asparagus, lemon, fresh horseradish, mushrooms and cream/butter.
