Fresh CT Local Fish

 CT Fresh Kokanee Salmon And Rainbow Trout

   Kokanee salmon are landlocked sockeye salmon that can be caught in various lakes around the U.S. They are commonly caught between the 10 to 18 inch size, with 18 inches about the maximum. They have a life span of 4 to 5 years and reach peak size just before spawning.
The top fish is a Kokanee Salmon caught in a Northwest CT lake approximately 18 inches. Below it is a 14 inch rainbow trout caught in the same lake.

These fish are best prepared by first scaling, and filleting. Cook fillets in a large frying pan with butter/ and or olive oil, lightly seasoned with salt, pepper, and fresh squeezed lemon to taste. When fresh caught these fish have a very mild and delicate flavor and do not need to be over seasoned. Cook fillets approximately 5 minutes per side over medium to medium high heat, don't overcook.
