"Steelhead Trout for a Good Cause"

New York Times - Florence Fabricant
The Kit for a Cause from Hudson Valley Fisheries benefits Relief Opportunities for All Restaurants.

In Hudson, N.Y., steelhead trout, a delicious salmon wannabe, are thriving. And Hudson Valley Fisheries, which is raising the fish indoors, is offering a package of two one-pound fillets (with pin-bones removed), two cedar planks and four ounces of its alluring cold-smoked steelhead for $50, with $12.50 of the price going toward Relief Opportunities for All Restaurants a.k.a. ROAR NY. You get enough fresh fish to feed six. Consider the steelhead for your Fourth of July menu. Back in the day in New England, salmon and peas were traditional for the holiday, and you’d be fine with steelhead.

Kit for a Cause, June 29 through July 13, $50, Hudson Valley Fisheries,
