(62612) Smoked Whole Trout - Belleau Bridge (Lincolnshire)
Belleau Bridge Trout
Farmed by Simon & Ginny Harrop in the chalk streams of the Lincolnshire Wolds, Belleau Bridge has a great reputation for full flavoured fish, reared on site from hatchlings and fry.
We supply Belleau Bridge Trout as Whole Fish or as boneless Fillets.
Our Whole fish are gutted and gilled before being brined in Kosher grade salt and hot smoked slowly using 100% Norfolk Oak.
We supply the whole fish either in individual packs or in 2 Kg Boxes
While the Whole fish are hot smoked "on the bone" and maintain a soft texture we also offer Fillets for those that prefer the subtle flavour of Trout without having bones making them great for serving or flaking in to salads or risottos for example.
Supplied in vacuum sealed packs, clearly dated and labelled and shipped chilled to most UK destinations overnight by Parcelforce
Serving Suggestions :
Whole hot smoked Trout can be served straight from the pack or warmed through for 5 minutes in a 180 degree oven. Garnished with lemon slices and served with a Green or Roquette salad, New potatoes and a light balsamic or mayonnaise dressing it makes a beautiful summer lunch or dinner.
When served warm, our Trout fillets make a memorable meal with a little creamed horseradish.

- Product Information
Rainbow trout are not actually native to these shores they are considered native in the North Pacific Ocean and associated drainages from the Amur River in eastern Asia, north along the Pacific slope including the Kamchatka Peninsula and extreme north-eastern Russia and along the Pacific slope of North America from Alaska south to northern Mexico.
Rainbow trout are predators with a varied diet, and will eat nearly anything they can grab. Their image as selective eaters is only a legend. Rainbows are not quite as piscivorous or aggressive as brown trout or lake trout (char). Young rainbows survive on insects, fish eggs, and smaller fish (up to 1/3 of their length), along with crayfish and other crustaceans. As they grow, though, the proportion of fish increases in most all populations. Some lake-dwelling lines may become planktonic feeders. While in flowing waters populated with salmonids, trout eat varied fish eggs, including salmon and cutthroat trout, as well as the eggs of other rainbow trout, alvei, fry, smolt and even leftover carcasses.
- Cooking Guide
Whole smoked trout can be served from the pack as it is. I would suggest this as a great way to make some outstanding pate, just make sure to remove the bones. A very straight forward way to eat the trout, in a pan with a touch of oil, when hot pop it in after 2-3 minutes turn it over. Trout Can be cooked in a microwave in between 90 seconds and 2 minutes, makes sure to put them in a microwavable dish though! also if you want to remove the heads and tails before cooking that also works. A couple of minutes each side under the grill is a great way to heat the trout trough. There couldn't be an easier way, clean the trout and make sure all the pin bones are removed, place the trout skin side down on a large oiled oven proof dish or on foil, and season to taste and bake for 10-12min at roughly 180C degrees. Put trout in a shallow pan and add vinegar and enough water just to cover the fish. Add salt and place on stove over medium-high heat. When water just begins to boil, remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 10-15 minutes. Drain and carefully lift fish to a platter. Steamed trout can take as little as 5-6 min, with a lot of very good recipes on the old world wide web. smoked trout will keep well in the vacuum pack. Generally we will give it 14 days to be on the safe side, this item can be frozen and the quicker you freeze the better it is when you thaw..
