Riverence® Grilled Ruby Red Trout Carbonara


  • 2 oz. olive oil
  • 12 oz. pancetta, cut into ¼-inch slices
  • 20 oz. Riverence ruby red trout fillet, skinned and sliced into 2 oz. pieces
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 oz. dry white wine
  • 2 lbs. fettuccini noodles, cooked weight
  • 4 each whole eggs, lightly beaten
  • 6 oz. parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper
  • 2 bunches parsley, fresh chopped
  • 1 tsp. salt


  1. Stabilize the grill at 350˚F and set up for a direct cook.
  2. While grill is coming to temperature, boil the fettuccini and strain.
  3. Preheat a pan, drizzle in the oil and add the pancetta.
  4. Cook until most of the fat has rendered and the pancetta begins to crisp, about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the ruby red trout pieces and gently incorporate into the pork fat.
  6. Add garlic and cook for another minute, be careful not to get any color.
  7. Deglaze with white wine
  8. Reduce by ½ and add the pasta. Fully incorporate everything in the pan by tossing with tongs.
  9. Add the whipped eggs, cheese, pepper and parsley. Quickly incorporate and take off the heat. You do not want to scramble the eggs, but rather achieve a slightly nape viscosity that has a
    creamy appearance.
  10. Taste for seasoning and adjust if needed.
  11. Serve as soon as possible.

Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
