Citrus Trout recipe

Simple is best when it comes to trout; a bit of butter, a bit of citrus, and dinner is perfection.


8 (4- to 6-ounce) trout fillets
¼ cup melted butter
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
4 lemons, sliced


1) Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with lightly greased aluminum foil.

2) Place butter, parsley, and seasonings in a small bowl; dip trout into mixture to coat.

3) Arrange trout evenly on prepared baking sheet; top with lemon slices.

4) Bake until trout easily flakes, about 15 minutes. Serve warm.

Citrus Trout Review by Camille on March 26th, 2013:

This was fantastic! So simple yet gorgeous and delicious. Used parchment instead of foil and brushed the mix on flesh side of two halves of a large trout instead of dipping and it was perfect. Used organic lemons too, which I find a bit sweeter. Kids loved it and asked for seconds. Served it with basmati rice (cooked with a little butter) and french green beans steamed then dressed in a little lemon juice, olive oil and salt/pepper. Everyone asked for recipe. I want to make it again this week!

Not enough seasoning, if you add a little garlic powder and pepper it takes it to another level!
