Idaho Rainbow Trout Is Great on the Grill

Grilled Trout Is Light, Delicious and Easy -- Exactly How Cooking Should Be This Time of Year

BUHL, ID--(Marketwired - June 09, 2015) - With summer in view, now is the time to fire up the grill and get back to lighter and healthier dining. Fresh, sustainable, easy-to-prepare Rainbow Trout may be just the answer you are looking for.

Only 9% of consumed fish are caught and/or raised in American waters, making fresh Rainbow Trout one of the few species that is homegrown in the U.S. Seventy-five percent of U.S. trout is produced in Idaho in a complex system of aquifers and cold, pure, crystal-clear springs.

Rainbow Trout is one of the easiest fish to prepare and a sustainable Superfood. It is recognized as a "Best Choice" by Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program for the sustainable and ecologically responsible way it's raised. Rainbow Trout is a nutritional powerhouse with an abundance of Omega-3's, lean protein, and vitamins and minerals.

To grill, simply place boneless fillets flesh side down on a grill or cedar plank, on medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes. Flip and season with lemon pepper or herb blends and grill for an additional 4-5 minutes. Glazes also work great -- such as maple, chipotle or soy ginger. In under 10 minutes your trout is flaky and flavorful and ready to enjoy.

Grilling Tip: To prevent fillets from sticking, simply take a raw Idaho Russet potato and rub on the grate. The starches from the potato will provide insulation and make grilling fish a snap.
