How to Cook Trout

Recipe by  

"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."

Directions

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat until butter smells toasted and is golden brown, about 1 minute. Turn off heat.
  2. Line a baking sheet with a piece of aluminum foil. Place trout onto foil; open trout so skin sides are down. Drizzle each trout with about 1/2 teaspoon melted butter. Generously season with salt and black pepper.
  3. Move an oven rack to 5 or 6 inches below heat source and preheat oven's broiler on high heat.
  4. Broil trout until opaque and barely firm to the touch, 2 or 3 minutes. Remove from oven.
  5. Return pan of melted butter over high heat; stir in lemon juice and parsley. Bring butter sauce to a boil; whisk to combine. Serve trout on plates and drizzle with butter sauce.

Simple and easy to make, but most of all delicious! I think this could be made with other fish such as salmon, cod, etc.

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.
