I've always been a huge fan of sea food: fish, shellfish, sushi, oysters on the half-shell, fish and chips, you name it, I love it...well, I don't eat octopus, but that's a whole other issue. I love that I can find sea food at the Farmers' Market, and I do my best to serve sea food in our house at least once a week, since it's so good for us, and sustainable sea food is so available. Most of my choices come from the sea: fishing boats that ply the waters off the coast of Long Island, but lately I've discovered that most deliciately delicious of fresh water fish, trout!
Seriously, are these the most beautiful fish you've ever laid eyes on, or what? The vendor at the Farmers' Market has both wild brook trout, and sustainable farmed rainbow trout, and oh my goodness are they delicious. We took our trout, wrapped it in foil with butter and salt, and baked it until it was tender. The flavor was unbelievable: sweet, and somehow as cool and fresh as the stream it came from. I've got to get the picture of the Vendor's sign off my phone, but as soon as I do I'll add it to this post.
