I recently had the pleasure of working with NY Steelhead on some awesome recipes featuring….Steelhead trout, of course!

If you haven’t had Steelhead trout, you’re missing out.

Steelhead trout tastes very similar to salmon in the fact that it is not excessively fishy and it also has very similar texture to salmon as well. It’s nutrition is close to salmon’s as well but because it lives in saltwater it has more amino acids than salmon.

Overall, if you’re a fan of salmon, you’ll LOVE Steelhead.
