My dad loves trout and often requests it when coming over for dinner. Served over a bed of steamed rice, this oven baked trout recipe is one of his favorite meals. Melted butter, olive oil, garlic salt and cumin provide a subtle touch of warmth while not overpowering the fresh fish flavor. A few lemon slices over the trout help to keep it moist as it bakes while they caramelize and make for a nice addition to the steamed rice.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
  • 1 large half of (8- to 12-ounce) whole trout, head removed, boned.
  • 4 slices lemon
  • 1/2 cup washed and chopped cilantro

Directions

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 °F. Spray a large baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In a small bowl, whisk to combine melted butter, olive oil, garlic salt, cumin and pepper.
  • 3
    Place trout on baking dish and brush with butter mixture. Place lemon slices over trout and bake until trout flakes easily; about 15 minutes.
  • 4
    Remove from oven and sprinkle with cilantro; serve warm.
