A Recipe for Oven Baked Trout in Parchment

Trout is a pretty tasty fish, but cooking it right can make it a phenomenal meal. Try out this quick and easy recipe from my buddy Kevin Ward. Serves 2, but you can easily double it for a dinner party.


2 Whole Trout, cleaned, boned, and butterflied (you can ask your fishmonger to do this)
Fresh Herbs-Parsley, Cilantro, Fennel, Chervil, etc.
1 clove Garlic, thinly sliced
1 Meyer Lemon, thinly sliced
Sea Salt
Fresh Cracked Pepper
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Parchment Paper


Preheat oven to 375º

Season both the flesh and the outer skin with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Stuff the the cavity with the herbs, garlic and lemon slices.

Fold parchment over fish, making overlapping folds along the edges. seal by folding end under. Bake 10-12 minutes. Be careful when cutting open bag as steam will be very hot.

Four years ago to the day, I was in Paris with my wife for a vacation where I took this photo. Deeply saddened by the news of violence and terror that happened there today. Our thoughts and support are with the people of France #prayersforfrance #parisjetaime #stoptheviolence
