Deliver Ingredients


  • 2 steelhead trout fillets
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon thyme
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 4 Tablespoons butter


Place the two pieces of trout in a bowl, besides the butter, and add all of the ingredients in. Mix all of the ingredients into the trout and make sure the fish is fully coated.

Let the fish marinate for about an hour.

Add the butter into a sauté pan that is on medium high heat. Cook the fish in the sauté pan for 7 minutes on each side.

Steelhead Trout Shopping Tip

A fresh fish should not smell fishy nor have milky, opaque eyes; it should have bright red gills, firm flesh, and a tight anal cavity.

Steelhead Trout Cooking Tip

Whole fish should be stored upright in ice in the refrigerator.

Steelhead Trout Wine Pairing

Most white wines (especially albariño) and rosé with most fish dishes. Muscadet, sancerre, or New Zealand sauvignon blanc with cold fish dishes; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, or pinot blanc with grilled or roasted fish; sauvignon blanc or gewürztraminer with baked fish; grüner veltliner with fish pâté; vintage or non-vintage champagne or sparkling wine with light fish dishes; fino or manzanilla with small fried fish; junmai, junmai-ginjo, or junmai-daiginjo with teriyaki fish.
