This simple lemon brown butter trout recipe really brings out the natural goodness of the fish. This classic trout recipe is simple to master and fast to make.
- 6 tbsp butter
- 2 lemons (juiced)
- 4 (6-8 oz each) boneless trout fillets
- Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
- Optional: 1 tbsp chopped parsley
In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat, and cook until it turns a light-brown color. Turn off the heat, allow to cool for about 5 minutes, and carefully whisk in the lemon juice.
Preheat your broiler to high. Place the trout fillets on a sheet pan, flesh side up, and brush a teaspoon of the lemon brown butter on each fillet. Season with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste. Broil about six inches from the flame for 5 minutes, or until done.
Add the parsley to the sauce and whisk well. Serve the trout fillets immediately, with the butter sauce spooned over.
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.
