This trout dish was good. I used farm raised trout which can be somewhat bland compared to wild caught. I added a peach/fruit relish to put on the fish to jazz it up a bit. I used cherry wood for smoking which has a nice sweet smoke flavor. If you aren't into smoking as I am; grilling or pan frying the fish works fine as well.

I served the fish with stuffed smoked Vidalia onions, brown rice and a salad.

For a wine I chose a 2013 Lodi Fenestra Verdelho. The palate is bursting with lemon peel and pineapple, adding a zesty finish with citrus notes. It is a food friendly wine that pairs well with lots of things.
