This easy poached trout recipe, a traditional meal in the Black Forest area, is called Forelle Blau. Usually rainbow trout is used for this dish with the fish ending up looking blue, hence the term "Blau" (meaning blue!) 

Rainbow trout have been farmed in Germany since the end of the 19th century. It is one of the main freshwater fish farmed, surpassed only by the carp.

Usually sold when they are about half a pound, these make delicious one serving portions. Normally one allows anywhere from 4 ounces to 7 ounces of fish per person.

For the recipe below, use one fresh, cleaned trout per person. "Forelle Blau" is translated as Blue Trout and gets its name from the characteristic blue skin that's developed during the cooking period.
