Rainbow Trout (aka Steelhead Trout when sea-caught), is native to northwestern America where it is found in open fresh water rather than the streams its cousin the brown trout inhabits. These trout are dressed but whole, allowing them to be broken down to fit numerous recipes or prepared whole.
These rainbow trout are farmed (more info about trout farming) and are sold gutted (aka drawn) with the head on.

RECIPES & TIPS
Rainbow trout are extremely versatile fish. They can be simply grilled whole and served with butter and lemon, or used in far more complex preparations including hollandaise sauce, braising in red wine, or poaching in court-bouillon. It can also be fried or baked en papillote (in a pouch of parchment paper or tin foil with aromatics). For an exciting table-side presentation, consider preparing trout in a salt crust.
