Wild Game Recipe: Easy Poached Rainbow Trout [VIDEO]

This easy poached rainbow trout recipe just might change the way you cook fish.

Poaching fish can often times be pretty difficult. If you cook the fish too long, it will come out tough and taste like water. If you under cook it, the fish is just gross, no matter what fish it is. For these very reasons, most home cooks shy away from poaching recipes, opting to leave it to the chefs on television, and creating recipes like this instead. However, this easy poached rainbow trout recipe is so simple, anyone can do it.

I’ve been using this recipe for a good while now. I have even used salmon, since this method is very adaptable. Fried fish and baked fish have their place but mixing in poached fish every so often brings whole new flavors to the table and is also healthier.

In this video, I’ll show you step by step exactly how to do make this great tasting dish with any fish, not just trout.


Pretty simple right? The hardest part is not taking off the lid until at least 10 minutes have passed.
