Steelhead Trout Bake with Dijon Mustard

Rating: 4.5 stars 135
This is really yummy - not overpoweringly mustardy! And, after all, any recipe that begins with white wine has to be good! It's not oily or buttery or anything. I've made it with salmon, and it's equally tasty.

Trout with Fiddlehead Ferns

This is an older recipe for fiddleheads passed down to me by my grandmother. Fresh trout is stuffed with a fresh fiddlehead stuffing, and then quickly roasted in the oven. The trout used for this recipe is about 12 ounces. Recipe can easily be adjusted for larger or more fish.

Butternut Squash and Trout Bake with Fresh Salsa

Rating: 4.5 stars 8
This is something a friend of mine showed me. It's super easy, not to mention delicious. I try to eat according to the paleolithic diet and this fits wonderfully. The portions are quite large, so it can easily feed more than 2 or you can have some for lunch the next day. Feel free to change amounts according to taste, especially in regards to the onion, cilantro, lemon juice and olive oil.
