Open for business: Ontario rainbow trout at Ford backyard barbecue

The Ontario rainbow trout was sizzling in the backyard of the Ford family home in Etobicoke last week.

On June 5, representatives from the Ontario Aquaculture Association were invited to participate in a closed “Taste of Ontario” event featuring Ontario trout, beef, lamb and chicken.

The barbecue showcased Ontario’s agricultural sectors as open for business for Consul-Generals from more than 70 countries. Many cabinet and caucus members from the Ford government also participated.

The trout was prepared by students from George Brown College’s Culinary Arts program. They smoked the fillets on cedar planks and served on cucumber with heirloom tomato salsa.
