This weekend: Hurry out to Herring Week at some of Seattle’s best restaurants

Ingredients are at the ready for cooks at The Whale Wins in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. From left front are crostini, sardines and roasted cauliflower. In the four ramekins behind: herb butter, harissa, pickled shallot and herring butter. Erickson works hard to source sustainable fish, as when she bought 1,000 pounds of herring at a derby in Sitka, Alaska, finding delectable ways to hook diners on less commercially popular choices.

It's happening right now at great local restaurants including Joule, Lionhead, Little Uncle and Mean Sandwich. Eat more little fish — it's the right (and the delicious) thing to do!
