One of Skagit’s own farm raised options is Steelhead raised in the cold waters of the Columbia River in Washington state.


These Steelhead are fed an all natural diet and no hormones or synthetic feeds are ever used.

Steelhead flesh ranges in color from ivory to brilliant red and has a mild flavor similar to trout. Steelhead can be substituted in many recipes for salmon when available. Like salmon, this fish has a sweet and buttery texture and dark pink in color when cooked.

How to grill a steelhead:


  • 2 pounds steelhead trout fillets
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce

1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.

2. Arrange the trout fillets on a large piece of aluminum foil. Whisk together the butter, lemon juice, paprika, and cayenne pepper; brush the mixture onto the fillets.

3. Cook on the preheated grill until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes; brush the fillets with the barbecue sauce; cook another 2 minutes
