This oven-baked trout recipe is the perfect balance of citrus, herbs, and buttery white fish. Perfect for quick dinners and hosting!
There were a few New Years resolutions I had this year, one of them was to eat more fish. So now, we’ve been eating more fish and testing more fish recipes. As you have noticed, there aren’t too many fish recipes on my blog, but that is about to change.
Fish is great for a healthy diet and if it’s prepared right, it is incredibly delicious. With this recipe, I was a bit worried with all the lemon and expected my husband to complain about the turnout. Instead, he started complaining of eating too much. It turned out way better than expected, and the best part is that it took under 30 minutes to prepare.
I found whole trout sold in Costco, there are a few of them per pack and the price is around $3.79 per lb.
