Tips & Notes
Diabetes experts recommend eating fish for cardiovascular health, but if your only experience with fish so far has been fish sticks or fried fish, you might be wondering how and why to include fish in your strategy for eating well with diabetes.
Fish is a great lean protein choice and it contains important vitamins and minerals. You don’t have to do a lot to seafood to make it taste good. Add a few herbs, maybe a squeeze or two of a fresh lemon and you have a delicious dish that is baked or cooked up in a frying pan.
Rainbow trout is popular in Western cuisine and is caught wild and farmed. It has tender flesh and a mild, somewhat nutty flavor. However, farmed trout and those taken from certain lakes have a pronounced earthy flavor which many people find unappealing; many shoppers therefore ascertain the source of the fish before buying.
Wild rainbow trout that eat scuds (freshwater shrimp), insects such as flies, and crayfish are the most appealing. Dark red/orange meat indicates that it is either an anadromous steelhead or a farmed Rainbow trout given a supplemental diet with a high astaxanthin content.
The resulting pink flesh is marketed under monikers like Ruby Red or Carolina Red.
Steelhead meat is pink like that of salmon, and is more flavorful than the light-colored meat of rainbow trout.
The best tasting trout is the fish you catch, clean and cook over a campfire.
