Oven Baked Trout

Sometimes the most flavorful dishes are the easiest.  Oven Baked Trout is definitely one of them.  Over the weekend Adam and I were craving seafood (quite a common occurrence for Adam), so we went into our local grocery store and took a look at what the seafood counter had to offer.  Of course Adam immediately spots the lobster, large scallops and Chilean sea bass, but knowing that our paycheck had already been widdled away after our mortgage payment, bills, gas, etc… we knew we had to look for something else.  I noticed some really fresh looking trout that had already been cleaned (a major plus) and decided to get two nicely sized fish, it cost under $6.00.

To roast the fish, it is so simple.  Make sure the fish is cleaned and butterflied, you can even ask the person behind the seafood counter to do this for you, but if you feel adventurous (we didn’t) you can follow one of the many How-To articles online, just type in “how to clean a trout” in the search box of your favorite search engine and you will find tons of advice.  Then, rub the fish inside and out with some olive oil and lightly season with salt and pepper, add some slices of lemon and a few sprigs of parsley, wrap the fish in aluminum foil and bake in the oven.

Adam and Joanne,

The trout sounds great, and surprisingly simple to make :) Maybe one day I will try to make one of these recipes, but in the meantime, when are you making this for me!

P.S. I am not surprised you didn’t want to clean the fish haha. That was a great tip though about asking the person behind the seafood counter to clean it for us.

Looking forward to your next post !

–Ryan

My boyfriend fishes all the time. We have a freezer full of trout. Of course it is cleaned but he did not bother to cut the fillets out. This is how he usually cooks it too. It is very good but the beauty is you can also add a lot of other seasonings to it. Found one today where they suggested bay leaves and another where it was stuffed inside with onions and carrots and garlic. Think if you keep it fresh, the flavors on the brighter side, the better off you are. Hope you will try more Trout. Thanks for the recipe, I printed for my book since he never wrote his down. Now you get the credit. LOL
