Defined as the Thursday before Groundhog's Day, Trout Thursday is a completely open holiday . There's no religious origins, there's no official ceremony, there's no preconceived notion of what you're supposed to do, feel, be, or say. The only rule is, you have to eat trout. After that, it's up to you.
This year, I decided to cook the trout in the skin and before de-boning. Last year's technique was more labor intensive, but resulted in nicer nuggets, more befitting of a pizza topping.

Mmmm, good, I'm lovin' it

Dave #2 and Rachel
We made a new friend, Dave #2 from the next table, who had "plenty of trout in is freezer." From Alaska. Perhaps Dave will fly through his supply now that he's been turned on to the joy of trout pizza.
Rachel and the evil fish
Rachel demonstrates that she does not eat fish.
