Trout is one of the healthiest fish you can include in your diet. Farmed trout, especially farmed rainbow trout, is a better choice than wild lake/river trout, since farmed trout is raised in freshwater ponds (farms) and raceways that are protected from environmental contaminants. The American Heart Association recommends consuming a 3.5-ounce serving of cooked fish like trout at least two times a week. Maximize trout’s health benefits by choosing low-fat cooking methods like broiling, grilling, baking or steaming instead of fried or breaded fish.
A cooked serving of farmed rainbow trout contains approximately 981 milligrams of the omega-3 fatty acids. A diet high in omega-3 fatty acids is linked to a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, high blood cholesterol and certain types of cancer. Omega-3 fatty acid consumption may also help prevent neurological disorders like dementia, depression, bipolar disorder and Alzheimer’s disease.
The 21 grams of protein provided by a 3-ounce serving of rainbow trout supplies 37 percent of the recommended daily allowance for an adult man and nearly 46 percent of the daily need for an adult woman.

We tried the Grilled Trout, which was very well made at the Barcelos, Khan Market, the South African food chain famous for its Peri Peri Grilled Chicken and Burgers. As told to us by Mr.Rohit Malhotra ( GM. Ops. Barcelos, India) ,” We source our Trout from the Farms in Manali, by air twice a week, to maintain freshness as far as possible. Marination of the fish is done at our end, in special ingredients, it is flame grilled in a choice of peri peri sauce. Grilling, without any kind of oil or fat added makes it even healthier to eat. The platter is served with grilled vegetables and fries / wedges as per the customer’s choice. They love to serve Trout, as it has a special place in Portuguese cuisine too. There is hardly any other place in India, which serves the Peri Peri trout other than, Barcelos “
