Whether it's the vast lakes of Ontario or the cold streams of British Columbia, trout thrive in Canada, becoming an integral part of our national seafood identity. You might hear trout referred to by various names, like "rainbow" or "brook," each signifying a unique species with its own characteristics. Farmed trout is also a significant aquaculture sector in Canada, both on-land and open waters.
Taste-wise, trout offers a versatile palette experience. Its flesh can range from pale pink to a rich, reddish-orange, with a delicately nutty and mildly sweet flavour profile. Whether grilled, pan-seared, or smoked, trout's tender meat can be the centrepiece of many a delicious meal. Serving a whole trout makes an impact on any dinner table.
Bone Health & Growth: Trout is an excellent source of vitamin D and a good source of phosphorus, which play a crucial role in building and maintaining strong bones and teeth and supporting normal growth.
Heart & Brain Health: As a source of omega-3 fatty acids, eating trout may promote the physical development of the brain, eyes, and nerves, and due to its low sodium and saturated fat content, it aids in reducing the risk of high blood pressure.
Lean & Heart-Friendly: Trout is a lean protein source, and its low sodium and saturated fat content helps lower risks associated with high blood pressure and heart diseases.
One of the easiest seafood species to prepare and one of the most satisfying. A few minutes in a pan or on a grill is all they need to add the perfect flavour boost to pasta, soups, and so much more.
