For me, fish is one of those things that I will always order when we are out because it feels very fancy and to be honest, preparing fish (besides fish sticks, I mean) has always intimidated me just a little bit. I have a whole category on this site for seafood, but it basically just consists of shrimp. So I thought we should remedy that with this simple recipe for Lemon Baked Trout.
I’m not sure what intimidated me about cooking fish — or buying it for that matter — because this was honestly the easiest thing I cooked all week.
It was almost as easy as making a bowl of cereal. Not even kidding.
Rainbow trout filets were easy to purchase – they were available at my local grocer fresh both times I went looking for them – and a whole pound was actually quite a lot of fish! And it was affordable ( a pleasant surprise because I swear last time I ordered trout in a restaurant it was like $15 for one little piece).
The preparation here was crazy simple — squeeze fresh lemon juice over the fish, cover with thinly sliced onions, sprinkle with pepper, cover with foil, and bake!
It took me less than 5 minutes of actual work.
Lemon Baked Trout is WINNING at the numbers game — this recipe serves 4 good sized portions at just 154 calories each and a whopping 23 grams of protein.
