  • 3 whole rainbow trout; cleaned, gutted, and de-boned {this served two adults and two kids}
  • Himalayan sea salt or Real salt
  • 1 or 2 organic lemons; sliced thin, divided evenly among the fish
  • 6 sprigs organic fresh herbs; I like a combination of Italian parsley and thyme, but you could switch it up, depending on your sides. Cilantro/oregano would be tasty as well. Or the classic dill!


Preparation time 5mins
Cooking time 25mins


Step 1

Heat oven to 450 F. Line a half sheet pan with parchment paper.

Season the fish, inside and out. Arrange the lemon slices and herbs on the inside of the fish, making sure to tuck them in. You can use kitchen twine to secure if you'd like.

Roast, flipping the fish once after 8 minutes, until the skin is brown, eyes have turned white, and the flesh is opaque. Total roasting time will be between 15 and 20 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish. When in doubt, temp. The thickest part of the fish should be between 130 and 140 degrees.

Serve immediately.

** Save the bones and head for a flavorful fish broth! **
