Recipe by Ciocia Laura

A simple, delicious, quick and inexpensive preparation of a fillet of lake trout. Many thanks to the Ontario Natural Food Co-op and the fisherfolk of Manitoulin Island for the incredible wild lake trout.

Great recipe! I put the oiled filet skin-side down on the foil... then topped with the onions, spices, added fresh garlic, then the lemon slices. Perfect!
