Garlic Butter Trout in Foil
1 pound trout fillet (optional – remove skin)
2 tablespoons butter
½ lemon, juice squeezed
1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon parsley, minced (optional)
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
This recipe can be made for the oven or for a grill.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees or preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Spray a sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray and place the trout fillet in the center. Fold up all 4 sides of the foil. Season trout with salt and pepper and then squeeze juice from half a lemon over the fish until covered.
Melt butter, stir in fresh minced garlic, and drizzle over the trout until evenly coated. Top with fresh minced parsley.
Fold the sides of the foil over the trout, covering completely, and seal into a closed packet.
Place directly on oven rack or grill grate and cook until cooked through and flesh flakes easily, about 15-20 minutes.
Optional step for the oven – open the foil exposing the top of the trout and broil for the last 4-5 minutes, for a browned top.
From prep to table 30 minutes
