Mike and I were picking up last minutes supplies at Wholefoods last night when I realized I was ravenously hungry. I remembered that Wholefoods will cook almost anything from their seafood and meat section for a $2 fee and so we decided to try their cooking. I wandered up and down the counters, but nothing really called to me – until I saw the whole rainbow trout.
15 minutes later we were sharing whole trout stuffed with lemon, butter and herbs with a side of grilled asparagus. Their grill is better than anything we have, so the skin charred in a way we just couldn’t do at home.
There’s something delightful about buying a whole fish and having it cooked in front of you immediately. And something quite remarkable about having this experience at a national supermarket chain.
