die Forelle

If you travel to the Königssee, you’re likely to see Forelle on the menu everywhere you go, perhaps as part of another word, such as Forellenfilet. Die Forelle means “trout.” This cold-water fish is stocked in the clear Alpine water of the Königssee, and it may only be taken in limited quantities to serve in the restaurants nearby. Räuchern is a verb meaning “to smoke (in cooking),” so die geräucherter Forelle is “smoked trout,” a Königssee delicacy.
