Pan-roasted Trout

Guys! I survived Stampede. What a week – so much to tell. And somehow now we’re fully immersed into summer. Heading to the coast is still altogether too far away, so I’m pretending to camp here – I have an open flame in my kitchen, after all. And a grill, and some good cast iron.

For now, I’ll just pretend I went fishing.

Citrus Pan-Roasted Whole Rainbow Trout

  

July 13, 2015

  • Makes: Serves 4.

Ingredients

1 lb. whole rainbow trout

salt and pepper

thin slices of orange and/or lemon

a few sprigs of thyme, parsley, dill or other herbs

olive oil

Directions

1Preheat the oven to 400°F. Rinse and pat the trout dry inside and out with paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Stuff thin slices of orange and/or lemon and a few sprigs of fresh herbs inside the cavity and cut a few slits in the skin on top.

2Set a heavy, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat and add a generous drizzle of olive oil. Once hot, place the fish in the pan, drizzle with olive oil and cook for 3-4 minutes; if you like, add a few extra slices of lemon or orange to the pan before sliding it into the oven. Cook for 15 minutes, or until firm to the touch.

    We did a version of this on Canada Day, drizzled with a chimichurri sauce! Whole fish is the bees knees – I never get tired of it :)
