Deliciousness... Oh man!
So yea, I am not sure if I have expressed my intense adoration for fish... well... if not here it is now:
I LOVE FISH......
And not just any ol' fish, but FATTY fish!
I'm talking Salmon, Escolar, Chilean sea bass, Sable Fish, Hamachi, Eel, Mackerel, Sardines, Anchovies... you name it, I LOVE IT!
But the purpose of this post is to talk about a specific fish that I am totally LOVING RIGHT NOW (probably because it's one of the only "fresh" fish we can get here in Jackson, Wyoming)...
Oh boy, it's good! I ate about an oozing (from fat, the omega-3 kind... which is so very healthy for you) pound of it last night (plus or minus a few ounces)... had about seven ounces today at lunch and will fish up the rest up tonight (mm mm good!)
Broiling it is most definitely the best way to seal in it's deliciousness! Oh yes, deliciousness is most definitely the WORD of this post...
Alright, I'll stop from keeping you guessing... it's Steelhead Trout!
This trout is actually incredibly similar to salmon and if you saw it at the store without a label as to what it was, you'd probably just think, ahhh Salmon... Perhaps you could consider Salmon and Steelhead Trout fraternal twins?
To all you who are health conscious, here's the nutritional low-down on my current obsession:
Per 3 ounces:
*Excellent Source of: Niacin/B-3 & Vitamin B 12
*Good Source of: Pantothenic Acid & Selenium
Oh and GUESS WHAT!!! Farmed Steelhead Trout is SUSTAINABLE!!! I finally like a fish that's on the sustainable list, so now I feel even BETTER about eating it! No guilt here! YES! (Wait, I actually don't feel guilty when I eat unsustainable fish, gah, I know, sorry!! But I just love the taste!)
So are you jonesing some Steelhead yet?!?! I mean common, if you LOVE salmon, you will CERTAINLY LOVE this fish... Oh and the best part (other than the taste, texture, health benefits, etc)... it's relatively INEXPENSIVE! I bought mine at $7 a pound!!! PERFECT, now dig in!
