Baked/Grilled Rainbow Trout

Lemon Pepper Garlic Rainbow Trout baked on a sheet pan in the oven. Easy and quick to cook. You only need half an hour to finish.

It is a healthy, low-carb, and gluten-free recipe. Packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

For this recipe, I used a single large rainbow trout fillet which is enough for a family of five. You can easily double this recipe by using 2 trout fillets to make generous servings. But one was enough for us.

It was so good it was gone in seconds... didn't have time to get a decent photo.

The next one I cooked, I make sure to take a photo before everyone dug in. The one in the picture below was grilled while the one above was baked. Both tasted delicious except the baked one keeps most of the pink color, and the grilled one has a more toasty look.

Rainbow trout is such a tasty fish with a wonderful yet mild flavor, almost similar to salmon. A good alternative for salmon actually. It doesn't need much enhancing at all, which makes it a very easy fish to cook.

To bring the best flavor out of trout, I used very basic ingredients:

Rainbow trout fillet
olive oil
salt and pepper
minced garlic
fresh lemon slices

That's it! That's all you really need to make the best rainbow trout!
