It’s easy, for me anyway, to get stuck in a rut. Do what works. We love salmon. I like it in any form and I’ve made it many ways but always gravitate back to poached. Today we took a different path at the fish counter. Trout!

I’m told that trout is the fish with the least amount of mercury and the highest in Omega 3’s. That’s good right?! This recipe adds flavor that my family ate up happily but I’m watching my calories so, to be honest, I cooked one piece with just a bit of salt and pepper and lemon juice. The natural flavor of the trout was delicious. (I use that word a lot, delicious, but it’s so true.) It was moist, tender and full of flavor.

I really enjoyed my simple dish but the rest of my gang raved about theirs. The almond flour and panko crumbs add a depth of flavor and a crunchy texture. Just a few ingredients and a few minutes, and you have a dinner everyone will enjoy.
