Q: I got a pound of frozen trout in my CSA this week. I'm a single lady on a tight budget, so I don't really want to share my one pound of meat for the week! The trout is pretty frozen so I can't separate the fillets. Any ideas or recipes that will use the whole pound? Ideally something that can be frozen afterwards?

Editor: Jessica, if you thaw the trout in the refrigerator, it is safe to separate the amount you want to use and refreeze the rest. Here are the USDA guidelines:

That being said, I'm sure our readers will have some suggestions for delicious ways to use that trout, whether you cook all of it at once or one fillet at a time.
Readers, do you have any ideas or recipes for cooking trout?
