Ingredients

  • 2 whole wild-caught rainbow or other trout, 10–12 inches each
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ sweet yellow onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons Chardonnay
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Juice from ½ lemon

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Clean trout thoroughly and place on a sheet of foil large enough to wrap entire fish.

In a small cast-iron skillet, heat oil over medium flame. Add onion and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from pan and place in a small mixing bowl.

Mix with wine, dill, paprika, and lemon juice. Stuff the trout with the onion mixture and wrap securely with foil. Bake for twenty minutes.

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.

Trout Cooking Tip

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