There are a number of fish which come under the heading “trout” and it might interest you to know that some are saltwater and some are freshwater species. Salmon are in the trout family but they spend nearly all their lives in saltwater, unlike trout. Trout is an oily fish and they are found in lakes and streams where the temperature is 50 to 60 degrees F. Young trout are called fry, troutling, or troutlet. This fish is found throughout Europe, Northern Asia, and North America. Rainbow trout were a steelhead strain of the trout family and they tend to run up rivers in the wintertime for spawning.

Trout are quite bony but their flesh is tasty. What the fish eat influences its eventual flavor and trout that eat crustaceans have a better-tasting flesh than those eating mainly insects. This fish contains very few dioxins compared to other oily fish. Dioxins are a kind of environmental contaminant. The following recipe combines this flavorful fish with onion, lemon and black pepper, for a simple yet delicious result. It is not necessary to add a lot of flavor to trout and some people like to cook it “au naturel” without adding any seasonings at all, so they can enjoy the natural flavor of trout.

You can use fresh or thawed trout in this easy baked fish recipe. If you want to use thawed fish, let it thaw overnight in the refrigerator and then rinse it under running water and pat it dry with paper towels. It is always best to start with dry fish, so if you are using fresh fish you need to rinse and dry it just the same. This mouthwatering fish can be served with any kind of potato or rice side dish and you might also like to serve peas, asparagus, green beans, or another tasty vegetable alongside this tender treat.
