Lemon Garlic Trout Recipe

Are you planning on taking your kids trout fishing at the Laguna Niguel Lake? Then you are going to find yourself on the hunt for the best trout recipes. When the kids came home with eleven giant trout earlier this week, I found myself staring at the whole fish wondering, “What do I do with this?” I googled, I Facebooked, I called my mom, and ended up discovering the Jaime Oliver recipe online.

Stuff the trout with garlic and lemon slices

I did some alterations to his recipe by adding garlic and wine, but overall it was the easiest way to cook the fish. Guess what? Because the kids knew it was the fish that they had spent the whole day trying to catch, they were actually excited to have fish for dinner last night. Talk about a win-win!

Hopefully, you found someone at the lake to help take off the head, and clean out the guts. If not – I am sorry – it is not going to be pleasant. I called in for some backup help from some good friends with a stronger stomach than me to help with this step.

Lay the fish on a bed of parsley, garlic and white wine

You will want to clean the fish the best that you can. After cleaning the fish, stuff the sections (once the guts that you had removed) with lots of garlic, parsley and lemon slices. Then in a large baking dish, add a large amount of parsley, garlic and (about 1/2 cup of white wine). Brush the fish with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and juice 1/2 of a lemon. Place the fish in the dish over the bed of parsley, and cook at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes to an hour (depending on this size of your trout).

Since the trout was not cut into filets, you will want to be super careful of bones before feeding your children. I cut the pieces very carefully for them to avoid any bones in their fish. Overall, the kids really enjoyed the fish. Since it cooked in wine – it took away the normal “fishy” flavor that the kids would taste when eating a trout.
