BAKED HONEY GARLIC STEELHEAD TROUT

BAKED HONEY GARLIC STEELHEAD TROUT

Ingredients

**1 steelhead trout fillet

For the honey garlic sauce:
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp lemon juice (or lime juice)
3 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp honey
1 inch ginger root (peeled and grated or thinly sliced)
2 cloves garlic (pressed, minced or thinly sliced)
1 tsp kosher salt (or sea salt)
1 tsp ground pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp fresh finely chopped parsley
1 Tbsp fresh finely chopped cilantro
2 Tbsp white wine (you can skip it if you don’t any on hand, but I highly recommend adding it)

For the garnish:
2 Tbsp fresh finely chopped parsley (or cilantro, or a combination of both)

Directions

Preparation

In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients for the sauce. Set aside.
Place the trout in a large baking dish or a plastic container, or a large Ziploc bag. Cover the fish with the sauce and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour, and up to 4 hours for best results.
Preheat the oven to 450F.
Transfer the trout, with the sauce, into a foil boat, place on a baking sheet and bake at 450F for about 15-20 minutes or until the fish is tender and flakes easily.
Do not overcook. If you start seeing albumin (white fish proteins) coming out, that’s a good indication that the fish has entered into over-cooked territory and needs to be pulled out immediately.
