Rainbow trout can be a clean and delicate flavour when farmed with Aquaponic methods, and a good source of Omega 3. This easy to make dish is a balanced blend of Mediterranean flavours. The crispy coating and smooth centred bites with the zesty gremolata complements a freshly mixed salad with an Italian dressing of olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper. I recommend to use local and organic where possible.
