Buying Steelhead Trout online: Know What to Look for


Steelhead are the migrating version of Rainbow trout, they are really the same species of fish. Steelhead migrate from the ocean into freshwater to spawn, and then swim back to the ocean or stay in freshwater, while Rainbow trout remain in freshwater throughout their life. Steelhead do not die after spawning like Pacific Salmon and are able to spawn more than once. But, steelhead are often a favorite of local fishers for their large size and feisty attitude.

Steelhead is the name given to the silver or steel-blue headed ocean-going form of the species. It is native to the Pacific coast of North America from northern Mexico north to the Bering Sea and inland to the Rocky Mountains.

Rainbow Trout varieties, which includes Steelhead Trout, are on the “Best Choices” list of the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s  Seafood Watch List which monitors world fish populations for over-fishing.

Salmon and Steelhead are closely related. They are both born in freshwater, then swim out to sea to live for several years, then return to Spawn. The one difference in this behavior is that the salmon enter the rivers and do not eat, which makes them very hard to catch, and they spawn once and die.  Steelhead will eat in freshwater while on their spawning run, and do not die, they can return to the ocean and back to spawn annually, as long as they survive.

Each Fresh and Frozen (Fin-fish item) comes in standard packs containing 2 pieces of either 6 or 8 ounce portions.

Steelhead Trout with Lemon-Pecan Buttered Breadcrumbs

Serves 2.

Items You Will Need:

  • 2 (5-ounce) fillets of Steelhead Trout
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh lemon zest
  • ¼ cup pecans, chopped
  • ½ cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard

Directions to Make:

  1.  Pre-heat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. While the oven pre-heats, heat a skillet over low to medium-low heat. Add butter and let it melt. Once melted, add the lemon zest, pecans and breadcrumbs and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring or shaking the skillet often, for about 6 minutes or until the breadcrumbs just start to toast a little. Remove the crumbs from the heat and let them cool slightly.
  3. Place the fish fillets on a non-stick baking sheet and season them with salt and pepper. Brush the fish lightly with the Dijon mustard and then press the breadcrumb mixture onto the fillets.
  4. Transfer the fish to the oven and bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until the fish is firm to the touch and the breadcrumbs are lightly browned.
