PREFERRED COOKING METHODS
Steelhead is packed with Omega 3’s and is one of those fish that cooks up perfectly every time. It has a mild, earthy flavour that pairs very well with citrus and herbs.
When buying Steelhead it’s important to remember that wild stocks are no longer commercially fished in British Columbia. All steelhead that you look to purchase in the marketplace is farmed.
This leads to the second important factor is to take the time to find out where your steelhead is from. Fisherman’s Market Steelhead comes directly from SeaAgra foods and is farmed locally in Powell River. It is antibiotic and hormone-free and is supported by the Oceanwise program. It is an amazing product farmed inland by people that care about the product and the environment.
