Steelhead Trout, which is actually a variety  of Rainbow Trout is a delicious fish that is quite easy   to  work with.  In color, texture and taste it is very  similar to salmon. In the wild, both fish swim up  rivers to spawn, and once mature, the  young return  to the ocean.

 The following recipe is simple and may be  tweaked  in any number of ways to suit your taste.
