Spicy Asian Rainbow Trout


  • 2 rainbow trout
  • 5 large garlic cloves
  • 1 chillies (tiny, mean, seeded and sliced)
  • 4 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 4 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Nuoc Mam sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 lime
  • cilantro


Cut 3 slashes on each side of the trout and place in a shallow marinating pan. Mix the garlic, chilli, oyster sauce, soy sauce, nuoc mam, mirin, pepper and lime juice together, then pour over the fish. Marinate in the refrigerator for about an hour.

Remove the fish from the pan, reserving the marinade. In a baking pan, fashion an aluminum foil tent, place the trout inside, close and bake in a 400 F oven for 20 minutes. Open the tent, brush with reserved marinade, then broil until browned.

Serve with cilantro, limes and leftover marinade.
