    Is it safe to cure a steelhead from the Rocky and eat it raw without poaching or smoking? I know with ocean run steelhead you can but I don't know on fresh.

    Good luck with that. It would be better served as fertilizer for your tomatoes

    Try poaching it in butter instead of oil. Much better flavor, kind of taste like lobster.
