How to cook Steelhead Trout
Many of us are trying to add more fish to our diets for our health, and during Lent seafood is also a great meal on meatless Fridays! Research shows that eating fish has a huge impact on your health. The Mayo Clinic points out that eating one to two servings of fish a week could reduce your risk of dying of a heart attack by a third or more – thanks to omega-3 fatty acids.
Salmon is often touted as one of the best fish to eat – because it’s high in those omega-3s. But there’s another fish you might want to try that’s very similar to salmon. It’s called steelhead trout – and it’s on sale right now at Coborn’s and CobornsDelivers.
Steelhead trout has the same pink flesh and a flaky texture as salmon. Like salmon, it’s high in protein, those omega-3s, as well as niacin and vitamin B12. If you haven’t tried this fish before, it has a mild trout taste and has a bit more flavor than rainbow trout.
Steelhead trout holds up to several cooking methods – making it a very versatile fish to cook! You can bake, broil, poach, grill, fry or even microwave a filet! It can be substituted for salmon in most recipes as well!
