A new grilling kit from Hudson Valley Fisheries is suitable for Father’s Day.
Steelhead is actually a rainbow trout with wanderlust. The fish, with orange-pink flesh like salmon, goes out to sea then returns to a river to spawn. It also grows much bigger than a typical trout. Steelhead are now being raised sustainably in tanks on land in Hudson, N.Y. Though a bit more delicate than Atlantic salmon, to which it is related, it is excellent on the grill. With that in mind, Hudson Valley Fisheries has introduced a gift package serving up to six people with two pounds of fillets, two cedar planks, some seasoning rub and horseradish Dijon sauce from Talbott & Arding, also in Hudson. Think Father’s Day or a gift for a summer weekend.
Summer Steelhead Grilling Kit, $50 ($40 if ordered June 16 to 18, with free delivery included within 150 miles of Hudson, N.Y.), hudsonvalleyfisheries.com.
