I'll be making Smoked Trout Rillettes and Oven-Baked Cioppino next weekend (from last year's SF Chronicle article). Anyone know where I can find the smoked trout? I need a 1/2 pound.

Thanks!

    I am sure you have found it by now, but I highly recommend the smoked fish at The Seafood Restaurant. The albacore and the trout are over the top good. They have a few locations; Santa Clara and Palo Alto on El Camino. It is smoked for them by ??? dang I can't remember but think it is in SF maybe. Call and they will tell you.

    I pop in there to just pick up their smoked fish.

      Thanks, everyone. I'm on the Peninsula, and I happened to run across it at Whole Foods in Redwood City. It was in one of those pre-packaged hanging packages next to the smoked salmon.

        Creekside Smokehouse near Half Moon Bay is likely your best bet.

        Try the local farmer's markets as well. I've been buying it in several East Bay locations.

          My go to place for smoked trout is Kanaloa Seafood at the Oxbow Market in Napa. We keep it on hand at almost all times.

          In the city? I like the smoked trout at Bi-Rite Market.

            Monterey Fish Market on Hopkins Str. in Berkeley. Also, I believe that Andronico's stores have them, but it's better to call first just to make sure.

              On the Berkeley- Oakland border, Verbrugge on college Ave at Alcatraz always has it -- I think they make their own.

                You don't say where you are, but Berkeley Bowl West has a good selection, and I think Trader Joe's does as well. Probably Whole Food as well.
