Featured Recipe: Broiled trout
Although rainbow trout is native to a narrow band along the West Coast of the United States, cultivation in ponds dates back more than 100 years. Today, farmers across the country raise this sweet, slightly nutty-tasting fish. Most market-ready trout comes from Idaho, where farmers send live fish to processing plants for filleting.
- 2 rainbow trout, butterfly filleted (about a pound each before heads are removed, 9 ounces after cleaning with heads taken off)
- 1 teaspoon butter or margarine
- 2 tablespoons almonds, sliced
- Lemon pepper (use an unsalted blend, about 1/2 teaspoon total)
- Lemon wedges
Heat broiler to high. Rinse trout and pat dry. Open fish and place skin-side-down on a foil-lined broiler pan. Dot with butter or margarine and sprinkle with almonds and lemon pepper. Broil about 5 minutes or until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.
