Trout is a very popular fish in Switzerland. When the season is at its’ high, the restaurants offer ‘truite meunière’ , which basically means fried trout with butter sauce and lemon or ‘truite au bleu’ – blue trout. Blue trout is a bit more complicated to make at home because you have to cook it just after you killed it (otherwise it might not turn blue as desired). You cook it in broth with vegetables and the chemical reaction between vinegar’s acid and the trout’s slime coating makes it turn blue. That should be enough of cuisine information.
Neirivue is a little village with just 1500 habitants. There you will find a fish farm full of trout. You can either buy your fish there (all clean and nice) or if you feel like it, take a fishing rod and enjoy some time outside and catch your dinner.
It’s a perfect place to go with family or friends. There’s a place to clean the fish, even a small BBQ spot and all you need to enjoy your fishing escapade. It permits you to fish without any special licence, which in Switzerland is quite complicated and costs a bit.
We took my parents there when they came to visit and they loved it (my dad’s hobby is fishing). Worth stopping by when around.
