Living in the land of 10,000 lakes, we should probably be a little more familiar with trout. In fact, we should probably be out at one of those lakes catching our own trout. But can you really imagine the Taster and I fishing? (Hmmm, I’d probably have my laptop, or at least the tablet so that I can stumble….he’d want music and sports) All nature isn’t lost on us, we love taking hikes in states other than Minnesota and of course walks along the Mississippi. Today we are actually “up North” and have hopefully hiked at least once by now. We also did spend some time on a lake, sans all forms of technology.
See, there’s proof!
Getting back to the trout, I was a little surprised by how much we enjoyed it! It is much meatier than I expected and reminded us a lot of salmon – in that good sort of satiating fat way. We simply seasoned it with olive oil, salt and pepper and grilled it. It is local, pretty inexpensive for fish and easy to prepare so it’s safe to say we’ll be having it again soon. Have any good trout recipes or recommendations for us?
