lake trout

In conjunction with a Ralph Lauren Instagram Video Series for “How to Cook”, I was asked to offer tips on how to prepare this lake trout recipe. Fresh fish straight out of the water is best, but if you don’t happen to fish for food, just head to your fish monger and get the best piece of trout or arctic char you can get. Serve with Raw Kale Salad for the perfect meal!

1. Mix first four ingredients together and brush on trout.
