This is a lovely aromatic dish of trout, baked whole with fresh herbs and lemon slices. You can use whatever herbs you like but fresh dill, parsley, and rosemary work well.

  • Rub trout with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Rub the cavity of the trout with salt and stuff with parsley, sage, and dill. Make a few slits in the skin on the back of the trout and stuff with lemon slices. Place trout on a lined baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven until flesh flakes easily with a fork, 20 to 30 minutes. Cover with aluminum foil if top starts browning too quickly.

Cook's Note:

Substitute a lime for the lemon, if desired.
