If you’ve ever had the privilege of seeing a Rainbow Trout in the wild, maybe basking in the sun just below the surface of the water, or momentarily catching the light as it jumps whilst fighting with a local angler it doesn’t take long to see where it get its name from. The sight of the glimmer from pink through red and bluish purple is a breathtaking event.
The rainbow trout you will enjoy from us is a farmed fish from a trout farm based on the Shropshire Welsh border. Interestingly, responsibly farmed trout is classed as a sustainable seafood option.
Whilst trout is not classed as a delicacy, you will enjoy a very delicate, slightly nutty yet sweet taste. The mild flavour profile it possesses allows chefs and that includes you to be versatile in cooking methods and flavour combinations. We give you the option of purchasing whole fish, providing you with the option of stuffing it with herbs, lemon and other ingredients to create a beautifully presented dish. If you prefer, you can choose fillets which roasted or grilled will bring a smile to your face with each bite.
Here’s a recipe for cooking trout – this applies to sea trout also.
