I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2017…

As a kid, I was pretty averse to whitefish salad. As an adult, I realized how wrong I was. Or at the very least I had never tasted the stuff at Shelsky’s. The chunky meaty whitefish has an irresistible smokiness and creaminess. The fish pieces melt in your mouth and are nicely broken up by bits of crisp celery. Price: $5.50/quarter pound
