Trout Festival

Trout Festival

Whole, cold smoked, hot smoked or ready-to-cook, trout is one of the most versatile fish in the kitchen. Here are some cooking tips and ideas on how to bring out the wonderful flavours of this fragrant fish.


How to cook trout

Use a paper towel to pat the trout dry and remove as much moisture as possible in order to avoid boiling the fish.

For trout fillets

When frying trout fillets, first cook skin side down so it becomes crispy. The crisp skin will protect the delicate flesh. Then turn and cook on the flesh side for a few minutes. Once the fish is cooked, you can easily remove the skin. When cooking en papillote, place the fish flesh side down on the vegetables so it absorbs the aromatic flavours.

For whole trout

Make a few incisions on both sides of the thickest part of the fish so it cooks evenly. Stuff or cook it as is in a preheated 190°C (375°F) oven. Calculate 12-14 minutes per 2.5 cm (1 in.) thickness. Serve on preheated plates —— fish has a tendency to cool quickly.

For smoked trout

Ready-made smoked trout can be used in many dishes such as frittatas, sandwiches, on pasta or pizza, in avocado and citrus salads, in wraps with pears or star fruit, or in crepes.
