How to cook Trout

Trout is a delicious fish that can be cooked in many ways. Here's a simple recipe for cooking trout:


  • 2 whole trout, gutted and scaled
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • Fresh herbs (such as thyme, rosemary or parsley)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Rinse the trout under cold water and pat them dry with paper towels.
  3. Season the inside and outside of the trout with salt and pepper.
  4. Stuff the trout with lemon slices and fresh herbs.
  5. Drizzle the olive oil over the trout, making sure to coat them evenly.
  6. Place the trout on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Bake the trout in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, depending on the size of the fish. The flesh should be opaque and easily flaked with a fork.
  8. Remove the trout from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.

You can also grill or pan-fry trout. For grilling, brush the trout with olive oil and grill it for 4-5 minutes on each side. For pan-frying, heat up a skillet with some oil over medium-high heat and cook the trout for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.
