Sea trout with scallop coral sauce

Sea Trout, or, Salmon Trout as it's sometimes labelled, "is a Brown Trout that has migrated from the sea to rivers to spawn"

The Sea Trout is not dissimilar to salmon, but in my opinion has a far superior flavour and texture

Specific fishing times for Sea Trout varies river to river, but Sea Trout will run the rivers generally June, July and August

This Recipe will serve 4 people, and, will take 30 minutes to prepare and cook
