Welcome to Fish Fixe, Freshwater Rainbow Trout! You’re going to love this Trout Almondine!

Our new Rainbow Trout was born and raised in the fresh waters of the Idaho Rocky Mountains.  Rainbow trout have 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. 

In this rainbow trout recipe, you’re more than likely to have all the ingredients already in your pantry.  You’ll be well on your way to a highly nutritious, vitamin-packed dinner.

 

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.  Freshwater rainbow trout is a superb alternative to the much loved salmon as both offer a powerhouse of Omega-3 fatty acids.
