We’ve lived in Montana for a few years now, and Roy has definitely taken advantage of the hunting and fishing the state has to offer. He’s provided us with venison, elk, bear, antelope, and an abundance of trout! But a new milestone was reached the other week when he caught his first Kokanee salmon!
We’ve had people tell us they don’t even eat trout anymore, but instead just eat the salmon. We were a little skeptical since we find some of the big, meaty trout has a salmon-like texture and flavor. And we also like the smaller trout wrapped in foil and thrown on the grill or over a campfire! Warmer weather is almost here so we can do that again!
We held an Olympics themed party last weekend and decided to make a whole lot of sushi rolls for it! A couple of weeks ago I had baked, deboned, and froze a fresh Missouri River trout, so we had plenty of fish to work with.
A couple of years ago, some friends showed us that making your own rolls was incredibly easy, fun, cheap, and pretty dang tasty! Fresh sushi-ready fish is a bit pricey, though, so we typically just make veggie rolls or use crab, smoked or leftover salmon, and once even fried chicken! With trout bits ready to go, we decided to give it a try.
