steelhead and falafel (Pleasantville NY Farmers Market)

Steelhead is my latest obsession. Someone described this delicate and flavorful fish as “the way salmon used to taste.” Thought I’d spread the word. But please don’t be disappointed if Pura Vida doesn’t have it this weekend–they only have what they catch, so you can’t depend on any one thing. But they always has a good selection of other items.

BTW, this is the last weekend for the outdoor market, which means the last chance for Aba’s Falafel till spring! (Unless I make the pilgrimage to their new shop in Rhinebeck.)

Kindred spirit here! I am also obsessed with the steelhead trout they have at Pura Vida. That must be their standard description of it because my husband (who likes waiting in the fish line for the friendly banter with the vendors) said the same thing about it being what salmon used to be. I’ve never tried Aba’s falafel! Guess I’ll make a beeline there next spring.

Yes, as well as the fish, I also enjoy the warm banter with Ryan and the folks on line there.

Ooooh, you have a very good falafel to look forward to.
