Kristy Crabtree: Steelhead Trout Tacos from ‘Nevada Foodies’

I LOVE fish tacos and am always searching for the perfect recipe. This week’s featured blogger, Kristy Crabtree, shares a delicious looking recipe for Steelhead Trout Tacos in her blog, “Nevada Foodie.” I hope this is the WON one. ~MC


This was our first guided trip with friends fishing for Steelhead Trout up in Oregon. I have to say this was one of my Top 5 Best Adventures. We were lucky enough to bring some trout home and make some of my favorite barbequed trout tacos seasoned with a spicy southwest dry rub and another favorite lemon and herb rub. I thought I would share some of the fishing photos along with the dry rub ingredients. Enjoy ~ Kristy
