Monthly Featured Item – SKYE Steelhead Trout

SKYE Steelhead Trout are raised in the open ocean of the Isles of Skye in Scotland. This Trout’s life cycle begins in fresh water, closed containment land-based circulation tanks. This zero waste sustainable system allows the Trout to be born and raised in fresh water as they would in the wild. Once the fish have matured, they are then introduced to the salty sea. It is here where the Trout swim against strong 5-15 knot ocean currents, mimicking the true life cycle of the wild Sea Trout. SKYE Steelhead is loved by chefs not only for its superior flavor and texture when cooked, but also for its versatility of cooking applications.
