I completely forgot to share my trout/salmon experience at the grocery store the other day!
I have never bought or cooked trout before, and decided to pick some up at the store. I had read recently that it, like salmon, was a good source of omega 3 fatty acids. Aside from the health benefits, I had decided to give a new fish a try! When I went to the fish counter at my local grocery store, I didn’t see trout. When I asked if they had any trout, the fish man (not to be confused with the fisherman) pointed to the salmon and said…”That’s trout right there.” I replied, “Are you sure? It looks like salmon, and it’s labeled farm raised salmon.” Then he gave me some weird reason why it was labeled that way……”the guys in the back thought it would just be easier to label it salmon”…..and assured me that it was actually trout. He also assured me that the Wild Salmon that I typically buy, actually was Wild Salmon. He was super nice and we chatted for a bit, and I believed him?? I bought the trout, labeled salmon, and went on my way.
I’m feeling kinda dumb that I didn’t realize what trout looked like, but I’m also kinda thinking my store is dumb for labeling it the way that they do. It’s not my favorite store anyhow, and I try really hard to buy my produce and meat at other stores, but it is the closest grocery store, so they do end up getting most of my business.
I was still unsure, so I came home and Googled Trout Images….
