  • 2  Tablespoons  olive oil
  • 1  Tablespoon  thyme
  • garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • lemon, juiced


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Place the two pieces of trout in a bowl and add all of the ingredients in. Mix all of the ingredients and make sure the fish is fully coated.

Let the fish marinate for about an hour.

Place the fillets on a nonstick baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, flipping once in between that time.  

Steelhead Trout Shopping Tip

A fresh fish should not smell fishy nor have milky, opaque eyes; it should have bright red gills, firm flesh, and a tight anal cavity.

Steelhead Trout Cooking Tip

Whole fish should be stored upright in ice in the refrigerator.
