How to cook baked trout in the oven

  1. Pass the trout under running water, then clean and dry them with a paper towel. If they are not already clean, cut them on the belly and empty the entrails, remove the scales on the surface and cut the fins with a scissor. Alternatively, you can choose fish fillets already prepared in your trusted fishmonger.
  2. At this point, cut all the vegetables into fine strips and season with garlic, oil, salt and pepper. Also add the lemon juice and the chopped aromatic herbs, finally mix everything well.
  3. Stuff the fish with the filling (or make a bed with the vegetables if you have opted for the fillets) and then place them on four sheets of aluminum foil.
  4. Sprinkle again with a little oil and put a few slices of lemon for each one, finally seal the foil and bake in the oven at 180 ° C for about 35-30 minutes . Fillets will take less time, although a lot depends on the oven. You can try cooking them for 20-25 minutes .
  5. Once the necessary time has elapsed, remove them from the oven and serve directly, without opening the wrapper.

We recommend consuming the fish at the moment , once it is ready and when it is still nice and warm. We do not recommend freezing in the freezer.
