"This delicious, simple recipe that I put together after asking various people what to do with rainbow trout! The soy sauce can be adjusted to taste. My family loves this with steamed rice and snow peas." — KerriJ

This recipe was really great! I usually love sesame oil and would have substituted it except I'm currently pregnant and can't even stand the smell of sesame. So I stuck with the olive oil and this still came out excellent. My Chinese husband also loved it. I mixed all the ingredients (except fish) together to make a sauce and cooked the fillets in tinfoil packets with a little sauce on each one in the oven at 425*F for 12 minutes and it came out perfectly. Very good, will be making this one again!
basically okay, but olive oil does not really go well with asian dishes. try using either sesame oil or peanut oil.
Yummy, enjoyed this one! Used one piece of rainbow trout (12-13 ounces) and since I was planning on baking this in the oven, I mixed all of the ingredients together to marinade over the trout (did use brown sugar instead of white and sesame oil instead of olive). Left for about 4 hours and then baked at 350 for 25 mins. Lots of flavour, the change to sesame oil is a must as it complements the other ingredients so nicely and I feel the brown sugar does too!
5* with adaptions from other reviews. I've tried grilling & baking a 1 lb. whole filet, wrapped in foil. The foil method was more moist & flavourful. First time, I followed the recipe except used sesame oil instead of olive oil & found it needed more flavour. Second time, it was amazing with these changes: Put large piece of wide, heavy-duty foil over cookie sheet. Place fish on foil & pat dry with paper towel. Increase soy sauce to 1 tablespoon & rub all over. Season top with salt, fresh cracked black pepper & brown sugar, instead of white. Seal foil loosely so it doesn't touch top of fish & marinade up to 2 hours, in fridge. Use sesame oil instead of olive oil & increase garlic & ginger to 1 + 1/8 teaspoons each. Tip: Freeze ginger to grate as needed. Saute onions & ginger first & add garlic last 3 minutes, to prevent burning. Spoon saute mixture on top of fish, loosely re-seal & bake at 425 for 12 minutes. To test if done, stick fork in top of fish & turn. If it flakes easily, it's done. If it's firm & feels like it needs a knife to cut through it, bake 2 more minutes. Let fish rest 5 minutes before unwrapping & removing skin. Thanks Kerri for a great recipe!
Substituted olive oil with sesame oil like was suggested by another reviewer. This really made this dish tasty and very Asian-like. The blend of the seasonings/ingredients worked well together. My family loved it and will definitely make again.
Did this with sesame oil because it made much more sense than olive oil for an Asian dish. My wife is from Asia and LOVED it, as did my 14 year old son. Other than the oil I made no changes- other than I left the skin on .....
This recipes is really good. Even my husband who is not a fish eater loved it. I will definitely make it again.
my son loved this. i used pure sesame oil and the brown sugar...yummmm
