Recipe by In-a-Pickle
"Very easy and tasty recipe I invented one day with ingredients on hand, for fresh rainbow trout (farmed or wild) that my family loves. It takes very little time and is much lighter than ocean fish. I use whole fish you can buy already gutted from the supermarket, with heads and tails still on. Make sure you pick trout that are really, really fresh. I find the dish doesn't even need lemon slices but you can use them if you like. The key is to remember to add the water to the dish as instructed in directions, which keeps fish from drying out. Serve with rice and veggies. Light and delicious. Be careful of bones! Make sure to add hot water to the dish; cold water can crack the baking dish."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I made this tonight with rainbow trout and it turned out beautifully in the end. I would recommend NOT using a glass dish, but to cook it in metal. When we added the little bit of water to the pyrex dish (as instructed), the entire pyrex dish shattered in our oven. I should have known better with water and glass, but trusted the recipe. Thankfully, the fish was saved and we finished cooking it in a metal roasting pan.
You must be very old to have "invented" this as it has been a standard for well over a hundred years!
extremely simple recipe & came out perfect. my mom loves it & she's a total health nut!!
very simple and the fish turned out delicious.
This is just what I was looking for. I use the same recipe when I grill trout. But the weather doesn't allow for grilling right now so it's good to know I can do this in the oven. I love the oven instructions and the trout came out tender and delicious.
I posted this recipe and was sorry to read someone shattered their pyrex dish adding water! I know what this is like as my hubby did the same once with a totally different dish. I had no problem because I added Hot water, which maybe I should have mentioned, but for safety reasons if you prefer a metal pan that's a good idea. Glad people are enjoying this.
I added some salt and some fresh lemon juice. It was very good.
Best trout recipe ever!
