Roasted Rainbow Trout was a mixed bag for us. More commonly known as Baked Trout, it’s actually so simple that any recipe can be used for it. All we are doing is taking the rainbow trout and baking it whole in the oven. I flavour with lemon and parsley on top of salt and pepper – and that is really it – simple baked rainbow trout.
The kids washed their hands to touch the rainbow trout before it was cooked. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea.
I wasn’t too sure how the kids would take having it to eat for tea, especially cooked with the head on, but it really looks impressive served on a platter. My kids were a little squeamish at seeing the eyes cooked as they go from having a black pupil to going white like our blind dog.
Here’s how we made it.
Middler was the one who chose the Rainbow Trout as a meal option, so I think he felt he had to give it a go, so he had a nice big plateful and wanted more. I really wish I was as healthy an eater as he is.
