One of the simplest of all seafood accompaniments, this classic brown butter sauce is a delight on the mild-flavored trout. This easy broiled rainbow trout recipe is perfect for beginner fish cooks.
Place the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook until the butter turns a golden brown color and takes on a nutty aroma. Reduce heat to very low, and keep warm.
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 to 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, and 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.
Glass Bakeware Warning
Do not use glass bakeware when broiling or when a recipe calls to add liquid to a hot pan, as glass may explode. Even if it states oven-safe or heat resistant, tempered glass products can, and do, break occasionally.
