By now you've probably heard how super salmon is for you, but it turns out that trout is in the same family and also contains plenty of omega-3, a fatty acid that is good for heart health. The American Heart Association recommends that we eat at least two fish meals per week.

Trout also is a lean protein source that is low in sodium, a good source of vitamins and high in niacin, a B vitamin that helps the body use carbohydrates efficiently.

Grilled Trout and Vegetables With Gremolata adds a parsley, lemon and garlic-based garnish for a flavor boost. Skip the coleslaw that's so traditional with fish dinners and serve the whole fish over grilled zucchini.
