Recipe by Chef John
"This recipe is so simple, it doesn't even have a name. I just call it Trout. This is such an easy weeknight seafood dinner. It's a really nice way to cook fish, especially if you're new at cooking fish."

Chef John nails it again. Absolutely perfect.
Simple and easy to make, but most of all delicious! I think this could be made with other fish such as salmon, cod, etc.
Best recipe for trout I have ever done!!!!!!!
This is a recipe that is so much better than the sum of its parts! Just FYI, I was dead beat tonight: all I had was concentrated lemon juice and dried parsley and there was no way I was leaving the house for either of these items. Regardless, it was incredible. I don't think it matters but we had steelhead trout, by the way.
this was awesome!!!!! my husband couldn't stop talking about how much he loved it!! Moist and very good! I am going to try it on salmon.
This may be the only way I ever eat trout again!
I can't get enough. We make this once a week! It is simple, quick and delicious! The only change we make is we use cilantro instead of parsley just because we love cilantro. I have come to the conclusion, after using many recipes on this site, that if it is a recipe submitted by Chef John recipe, it is going to be amaaaaazzzing!! Thanks so much for another winner Chef John!!
