Steelhead Trout Bento I was lucky enough to see this steelhead trout on sale while picking up some other items for dinner.  I wish I could have fish at every meal, but in a landlocked state it’s really not a viable option.  Still, if I see a deal I try to make room in the budget ^_^ I really should have cut it in order to arrange it more neatly in the bento box, but the fish itself was so lovely I couldn’t bare to slice it!  I just tucked in a few snow peas for color and added a container of soy sauce for the rice underneath.  If you’ve never had steelhead trout, it’s very similar to salmon, and in fact if you see it raw it’s hard to distinguish between the two.  I could eat my own hand if it’s teriyaki-glazed, so naturally it was my first choice for sprucing up this tasty fish.

Steelhead Trout Teriyaki

2 steelhead trout fillets
1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 Tbsp grated ginger
3 Tbsp soy sauce
3 Tbsp mirin
3 Tbsp sake
2 tsp white sugar

Combine all ingredients except trout.  Marinate trout in this mixture for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.  Remove trout and reserve marinade.  Pan fry in small non-stick skillet on medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes per side, basting with reserved marinade several times during cooking.
