Butter Lemon Trout

Today I want to share a very simple recipe for fish, I used steelhead trout for this recipe. This fish can make a wonderful weekday dinner, while the fish is in the oven just prepare a simple green salad to go with it. It is healthy and so tasty.


2 trout filet
1 to 2 tablespoon parsley finely chopped
4 cloves of garlic finely chopped
Β½ teaspoon paprika
Β½ teaspoon red pepper
2 tablespoon butter
Β½ tablespoon olive oil
1 lemon, peel grated.


Melt the butter in the microwave and add the olive oil, garlic and parsley.
Please the fish in a slightly oiled baking dish, sprinkle with paprika and red pepper and baste the trout with the butter mix.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375F for approximately 15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
Place on a serving plate and squeeze the lemon juice over the trout and garnish with the lemon peel. Serve hot.
