We know getting your recommended two weekly servings of seafood can be tough. Maybe you’re a novice when it comes to cooking fish at home. Or perhaps busy midweek schedules have you dialing for takeout rather than concocting in the kitchen. Luckily, we found a batch of recipes that range from easy to adventurous, healthy to indulgent, and everything in between. Take a look– you might find your next favorite!
1. Whole Roast Trout with Potatoes and Asparagus: This recipe by French Revolution is seasoned with fresh thyme and lemon. Baby potatoes and asparagus alongside the trout make it a “healthy, easy, fast, and hearty” meal.
3. Pan-Seared Rainbow Trout with Asparagus, Wild Rice, & Citrus Dijon Vinaigrette: Sometimes it’s best to keep things simple. Lightly sautéed and seasoned with salt and pepper, the true flavor of rainbow trout stars in this plate. The homemade vinaigrette does double duty: in this dish and as leftovers drizzled on your weekday lunch salad.
4. Maple Balsamic Rainbow Trout: For this recipe, grab a few pantry staples and combine them to create a new flavor palette! Two Kooks in the Kitchen gives you fresh, flavorful and fun in less than 30 minutes.
6. Trout Grenobloise: Who better to teach us about this traditional French trout dish than Martha Stewart? The timeless trio of citrus, capers and parsley pair seamlessly with mild trout fillets.
7. Baked Rainbow Trout with Pine Nut and Lemon Gremolata: If you’re calorie-conscious, roasting is one of the best ways to prepare fish. Keep it light, but absolutely packed with flavor, by using fresh herbs and tons of citrus. And a sprinkling of parmesan, of course!
8. Home Cured Trout: Curing trout couldn’t be easier! Just rub it with some spices, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for about three days. Fork Spoon Knife recommends serving it on top of potato and smoked gouda pancakes.
10. Trout with Sorrel Sauce: If you’re not familiar with sorrel, be prepared for a bit of tanginess from this herb. Things I Made Today pairs it with butter and cream– two ingredients you definitely can’t go wrong with.
11. Stuffed and Grilled Rainbow Trout: This gluten-free and dairy-free stuffed trout is all about smoky flavors– from the grill and from bacon! Girl Carnivore serves this dish with a lemon-cayenne tartar sauce.
12. Rainbow Trout and Pasta in Parchment: If you’re new to cooking seafood at home, parchment is the way to go. It keeps the fish moist so you won’t need to worry about overcooking. Seasons & Suppers adds broccolini and bowtie pasta to the packets.
13. Herb and Almond Stuffed Rainbow Trout: If you’d rather cook with fillets than whole fish, this stuffed recipe is for you! Just sandwich all the almond and breadcrumb goodness between two boneless fillets and secure with kitchen twine.
15. Seared Trout on Toast with Tomato and Onion Relish: Homemade aioli and toasted garlic brioche fill this easy dish with flavor!
