Smokehouse Almond-Crusted Ruby Red Trout Fillets


by: Josey

In a world where you have time and energy to spare, you would take the fillets and steaks out of their packaging, sit them on top of some crushed ice in a bowl, cover them with plastic wrap to prevent them absorbing other aromas in the refrigerator, and replace the ice before it melts. But realistically, if you store them in their packaging in the coldest part of your refrigerator for no more than a couple days, they will be fine...except for mollusks like oysters, clams, and mussels, which need to breathe, so take them out of their bags and grill them the same day.
