Just because we’re home, it doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy a nice meal that could easily be served in the restaurant you visit for special occasions, when friends and family visit or just to make you feel good.
It’s up to us to bring fine dining to our own dining rooms and that is exactly what I did.
I prepared Steelhead Trout, roasted Vidalia Onion and a fresh Rainbow Salad, accompanied by an earthy Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.
Steelhead Trout, also known as Rainbow Trout is one of the healthiest types of seafood you can eat. It is full of Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, and Omega-3 fatty acids and yet low in mercury.
Most, generally serve fish with a Chardonnay or a Pinot Grigio. I chose the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2013 because I think it elevated the way in which I prepared my Trout, that I marinated using vibrant herbs and spices. The Montepulciano d’Abruzzo (the only red d.o.c. Italy) provided the savory element and accompanied well with the sweet tones from the onion and my rainbow salad.
This dinner was everything! One thing is for sure and two thing’s for certain. You can expect this lovely meal to be served at one of my future dinner parties.
