How to cook your catch:
Here is my favorite way to prepare Trout and Salmon
Ingredients you’ll need:
Trout or Salmon Filet
Salt and Pepper
Preheat grill or oven to 375 degrees
Place filet, skin side down, on foil sheet
Rinse and pat dry one filet
Season with ingredients listed above
Sprinkle lemon juice on filet
Drizzle olive oil on filet
Wrap filet with edges of foil making sure the filet is covered (to steam)
Place on grill (med heat) or in oven and cook for 5-10 minutes (depending on the size)
The fish is cooked when it turns color and starts to flake
DO NOT OVERCOOK! It is easy to over cook your catch. I like to pull mine off the grill when it is not quite done. The heat and steam in the pocket of the foil will allow the fish to finish cooking through.
Remove the skin by flipping the filet over. It should peel right off (feed to cat or dog – they love it!)
Plate up and enjoy!
Common side dishes I like with my fish are wild rice with steamed veggies and sautéed onion and mushrooms, but feel free to get creative!
