Recipe Tips

Serving SuggestionServe with your favorite steamed vegetable to round out the meal.

How to Buy Whole TroutLook for fresh trout with a firm texture, moist appearance and fresh mild smell. Whole fish should have clear bright eyes and red to bright pink gills. Store in the coldest part of the refrigerator up to 2 days. Ask your vendor to scale, bone and butterfly the trout for you.

Special ExtraFor added crunch and flavor, add 1 cup thinly sliced jicama and juice from 1 lime to the mango slaw.
