Freshwater Fish Recipes | NIKU Farms

January 17, 2022

Did you know that NIKU Farms doesn’t just have pasture-raised meat? Some of our farms offer super fresh, ethically sourced local fish products! 

Whether you prefer a fillet, or fish burgers, we’ve got you covered. John O’s Foods has some great fish options for those looking to satisfy that craving.

Keep on scrolling to see what types of fish products we offer and their health benefits.

Fish Burgers

Fish burgers are an excellent alternative to beef if you’re looking for a healthier option with just as much flavour. You can still add all your favourite toppings to the sandwich, and know that you’re making a good decision for your body. 

Rainbow Trout

Rainbow trout is a lean fish but is still packed with healthy fats your body needs. It’s super easy to cook, and you can absolutely keep the skin on for some added texture and flavour. 


Like the rainbow trout, pickerel is high in those healthy omega-3 fats. It’s also rich in vitamin D which is great to keep your bones strong. 


If you opt to try our whitefish, you’re looking at a fillet that’s similar to salmon. Along with being a low-fat source of protein, it helps fight inflammation, supports the immune system, and supports the nervous system. 

If we’ve got you salivating for local fresh fish, head over to our products page and start brainstorming how you’ll use these fish in your next NIKU Farms box!
