Sea Trout - Season? Substitute?

MMRuth | | Jan 21, 2010 12:59 PM

Two years ago, in January, I made a new recipe that called for sea trout. I was pleased to find the whole fish at my usual fish store - Citarella - and at a very reasonable price. This time last year, I wanted to make the same dish (for our anniversary), they didn't have sea trout, so I used branzino instead. I just called now, and was told that sea trout is out of season. So, was this a fluke two years ago? Any suggestions for other substitutes?

Here's the recipe:
