Pistachio Lemon Rainbow Trout on plate

Pistachio Lemon Rainbow TroutTrouts are an excellent source of protein and omega 3s, and usually much cheaper than their other fish counterparts. When choosing trout, look for shiny scales, and meat that is firm to the touch. Pan-frying this fish makes for easy bone and skin removal (but some of us enjoy the crunchy skin). It's nicely paired with a bright and zesty sauce that does not have added oils or butters, as it's rather rich on its own. This takes around 15 minutes to throw together, so it's great for busier days.
