Makes 6 Whole Broiled Rainbow Trout
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 6 whole boneless rainbow trout
- salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- lemon wedges to garnish
Remove the heads from the trout, and place skin-side-down on lightly-greased foil-lined baking sheets. Lightly brush a little of the browned butter over the surface. Season generously with salt and fresh ground black pepper.
Broil about 4-inches from the flame for about 3-5 minutes, or until fish flakes when tested with a fork. While the fish is cooking, turn the butter up to medium heat and whisk in the lemon juice. As soon as the mixture comes to a boil, add the parsley, turn off the heat.
When ready, serve the trout on warm plates with the hot lemon parsley brown butter spooned over the top. Serve lemon wedges on the side.
