An exceptional trout
Steelhead Trout is of the rainbow genus (oncorhynchus mykiss), but we transfer it to the sea at 9 months, when it has a natural inclination to migrate to the ocean.
In the sea, the Steelhead grows into a bigger, stronger, more silvery fish than its river counterpart. It’s athletic; giving it a wonderful, non-fatty firm texture, earned from the muscle power needed to swim against a vast tonnage of sea water and strong ocean currents. The sea impacts the taste profile too; the Steelhead has a real depth of flavour, enhanced by the natural minerals of the water, but is clean and delicate on the palate.
