A grilled whole fish is such a treat, but so hard to find in the store at peak freshness. That’s why I was so happy to discover these freshly caught whole river trouts at White Oak Pastures. They are frozen when they are caught to ensure the highest quality 🙌🏻🤩
I’ve made a whole roasted branzino before which was a hit 🥳
I normally get my seafood at Vital Choice, check out my guide here 🐠
One river trout is about a pound and will feed one hungry person or 2 smaller eaters 😇
To make you need:
1 whole trout
Salt and pepper 🧂
Optionally lemon and herbs for stuffing 🌿🍋
Heat up to it oven to 450°F, but make sure to turn it down to 400° when you bake the fish.
While the oven is heating up, prepare your fish. It should already be gutted and descaled. Season it from the inside and outside and optionally place herbs and lemons into the cavity. Then wrap it in parchment paper.
Next, place the wrapped fish on a baking tray and bake for about 20 minutes until the fish falls off the bone. Then you can easy debone it by pulling the tail towards the head, the backbone should come out easily and intact 😀
