Description

Rainbow trout is a rich source of omega-3 oils and has a flavour often described as earthy or nutty. It has a low amount of fat and saturated fat in comparison to other oil-rich fish such as salmon.

The trout family is carnivorous and takes its name from the Greek “troktes”, meaning voracious. The flesh pairs well with garden herbs, almonds, lemon and white wine. It’s a versatile fish which can be sautéed, grilled or baked en papillote, and also lends itself well to cold and hot smoking.

A silvery fish with spots over its body and fins and sometimes a purplish-blue band on its side, rainbow trout is a species native to North America which has been exported to many countries.

Rainbow trout are farmed and consequently recommended by the Marine Conservation Society as a good choice for consumers who care about sustainability.

Storage

Whole rainbow trout are best eaten as fresh as possible. Keep refrigerated between 0˚C and 5˚C and consume within three days of delivery. If freezing, do so on the day of delivery and consume within two months. We recommend defrosting overnight in the fridge, placing the rainbow trout in a colander over a bowl.

How We Package Your Fish

1. First we vacuum pack individual fish portions (if the fillets are small then we will pack them in pairs).
2. Each portion is then weighed and clearly labelled.
3. We add frozen chill packs, which contain non-toxic gel, to a polystyrene box.
4. We pack your order so the chill packs distribute the cold evenly throughout your fish and seafood, ensuring maximum freshness.
5. We seal the box with packing tape and hand it to our courier, who will deliver it to you within 24 hours.
