Trout is a river fish which is full of omega 3s and B vitamins. It is also one of the fish with the lowest mercury levels consistently.

This is the simplest way to cook any fish. You can even make it at the side of the river on a small burner.

Whilst the recipe is for trout, it would be equally suitable for any medium to small whole fish, sea bream for instance.

Is fish safe to eat? I mentioned at the top of the page, that trout has low mercury levels - the larger fish, such as swordfish, some tuna and some mackerel do have higher levels. There is an interesting article here about mercury in seafood. Overall, don't worry, eat a little of what you fancy - you would need to eat swordfish every day of the week for many years for it to be harmful. Personally, I love swordfish but only eat it two or three times a year.Find A Seafood Recipe > Freshwater Fish Recipes > Trout Recipes
