Fresh Ruby Red Rainbow Trout
Jul 10th, 2014
Our current supply of Ruby Red Trout Fillets is FRESH product, from Indiana, USA! Ruby red trout is essentially farm-raised trout fed on either small crustaceans (shrimp and crawfish) or naturally colored fishmeal. As a result, the trout’s flesh turns a salmon-like reddish pink and acquires a subtly different flavor. This fish is delicate and has a high fish oil content. It is flaky and flavorful and comparable to Rainbow Trout or Steelhead Trout. The Ruby Red Trout has scales that are SHINY BRIGHT orange/red in color. The red is not the typical red you see on salmon. Ruby Red Trout cooking methods include grill, blacken, bake, saute, deep fry, pan fry, poach or smoke.
