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!
