Purchasing
When selecting fresh fish, there should be no odor, the flesh should be firm and elastic, the scales should be bright with a sheen, the gills should be reddish pink and the eyes bright, clear and bulging.
Substitution
Trout or another moderate-flavor fish would work well in place of the whitefish. Don’t hesitate to ask for suggestions at your local market.
