Canadian Steel Head Trout

Picked up some Canadian Steel Head Trout ...I absolutely love this fish.
It is tender,delicate and not as fatty as traditional salmon.

I really didnt do much to it. Lemon,Parsley,Old Bay and a little black pepper.
It came perfect.

I also made what I call a vegetable medley rice .
I saluted onion,shallot,scallion,carrot,celery and sweet red pepper.
Then I add the rice and saute.
Add the water and salt and bring to a boil.
Once it reaches a boil I turn down the heat to the lowest setting and I let the rice simmer...never lift the top until its done and never ever stir the rice. Just let it be!

I also saluted onion,shallot,garlic and some mushrooms...once translucent I added diced yellow squash.
I let it cook slowly. It came perfect! Not mushy- firm yet still tender.

Did I mention I made a loaf of bread...It was all very yummy!

That all looks delicious. I also love "salmon trout" for exactly the same reason -- it is less fatty than traditional salmon. I come from a long line of NE Penna. trout fishermen, all the little brooks in the hills of places like Dingmans Ferry and Shohola were where we got dinner very often. I love salmon trout (Trota Salmonata) because of the infusion of both flavors -- the fish are close relatives.

Love the bread! :)
