We are proud to announce that freshwater rainbow trout, farm-raised in the Idaho Rocky Mountains, will now join Fish Fixe’s line up of premium proteins.
Rainbow trout has been raised along the Snake River in Idaho for over a century, and delivers a high quality, sustainable product that has minimal environmental impact. The result of this freshwater farming process is a tender, medium texture trout that easily flakes with a fork. It can be baked, grilled or pan fried, and a light seasoning and squeeze of lemon go a long way to enhance its mild flavor.
At Fish Fixe we are strong proponents of sourcing both wild caught and farm raised fish. We only work with farms that are certified by Best Aquaculture Practices and Aquaculture Stewardship Council, the two leading U.S. certifications.
We believe that investing in responsible aquaculture is an important key to feeding a growing population all while taking the pressure off our oceans and the most sought after wild caught species. Rainbow trout is a superb alternative to the much loved salmon as both offer a powerhouse of Omega-3 fatty acids.
Rainbow trout provides significant health benefits. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which support brain development, contributes to maintaining a healthy heart and studies have shown it reduces the risk of depression. The lean white fish also carries over 30g of protein in a single 6-ounce serving, and is an excellent source of Vitamin D.
