Grilled trout cuts down on saturated fat

By now you've probably heard how super salmon is for you, but trout is in the same family and also contains plenty of omega-3.

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.
