Dinner tonight: Baked steelhead
Did you know that steelhead trout are actually part of the
salmon family? These silvery fish are one of the top sport fish in North
America – and very tasty, too!
Steelhead and rainbow trout are the same species, but they
have different lifestyles: Rainbow trout spend their lives in freshwater
environments, while steelhead trout start in freshwater, moves to the ocean after
2-3 years, and then can return to a freshwater stream to spawn.
Steelhead looks and tastes similar to salmon, with a more
delicate flavor and tender texture. It’s the perfect choice for a simple fish
dinner any night of the week.
To serve steelhead, try this simple baked recipe! Start by
heating your oven to 400 F. Place the steelhead trout in a baking dish. Top
with olive oil, minced garlic and Lunds & Byerlys Northern Lights
Seasoning, plus salt and pepper to taste.
Bake for 15-20
minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
