Steelhead: Lake Run Rainbow Trout

January 7, 2012

A dappled and rosy steelhead

Last night we had steelhead for dinner.  It was just caught in a cold tributary to Lake Michigan. A steelhead is a large strain of rainbow trout that ascends rivers from the Great Lakes to spawn.  Such fish are called anadromous.  Its skin was bright red and steely; its flesh salmon color.  Delicious.  I baked it in a little olive oil and some seasonings.  The trick is not to over cook.  It’s done when the flesh just begins to flake when poked with a fork.

Read more about Great Lakes fish in my book, The Dynamic Great Lakes.  It’s widely available on the www and in brick and mortar stores such as Barnes & Noble.
