Marinated Steelhead Trout

Fish should be a staple ingredient in every household. I try to keep some in the freezer but I can honestly say we don’t eat it very often. I don’t know why. I love it when we do have it and I would consider it a quick fix meal. If you’re being conscious of what you eat, fish is an excellent healthy choice. It is low in fat and calories, high in protein and there is an abundance of vitamins like B2, A, C and D and essential fatty acids (nutrients that are required for good health but the body cannot make itself. Fatty acids found in fish are primarily alpha-linoleic acid and linoleic acid) Sometimes I find it difficult to come up with something to put on fish, something that is really complimentary and doesn’t just overwhelm the flavor of the fish itself. I also have a hard time finding recipes that don’t include added sugar – like brown sugar. The marinade with this steelhead recipe is pretty subtle, you can still taste the fish but it is flavorful enough that I don’t feel like I just shook some salt and threw a lemon onto the grill. It could easily be used on any type of fish or maybe even some beef for a stirfry. None of my pictures turned out but I didn’t want to hold out on the recipe any more – it’s the beginning of bbq season afterall!
