It is really that easy….
Steelhead may look a lot like salmon, but it is not technically “salmon”. Steelhead is a type of trout, an entirely different fish, but in the same family of fish as salmon. Steelhead starts its life out as a Rainbow Trout. If the Rainbow Trout migrates to the ocean, it becomes a Steelhead. If it never goes to the ocean, it stays a rainbow trout for its entire life. Because steelhead and salmon are closely related, the taste, texture and cooking methods are similar.
If you’re short on time, but are still seeking a tasty and healthy meal, this recipe is for you!
I stumbled upon this condiment combination when I ran out of the usual suspects….literally the only items that I had left in the fridge were hummus and sweet chili sauce. I figured, well you never know until you try! I’m well aware this sounds a bit bizarre, but it really does work well with this fish.
Here’s how easy it is:Spread the fish filet evenly with 1/4 cup hummusDrizzle the sweet chili sauce over top and spread evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes.Start with fresh greens (LOTS of greens!) and then build your full meal from there.
