  1. I thought this recipe was delicious! I thought I had defrosted trout when in fact it was red snapper filets. So I used the recipe anyway. The other change is I used dried lemon peel and lemon juice out of a plastic lemon. Still with those changes, it was a fantastic recipe. Made for Honor Thy Mother - Diabetic tag.
  2. I came across this as a result of a last minute search on what to do with these two beautiful trout fillets my wife left me this morning. The oil content of the rub, kind of a gremolata really, serves to seal the fish due to the high temp of the oven. My fillets were wonderfully moist and full of flavour. Step two omits adding the lemon zest. Be careful about the stated basil measure. There isn't a distinction between fresh or dried. I'd suggest 1Tbs of dried or 2Tbs fresh. All in all this was great.
  3. Basicly good, however I did not like the texture of the trout.
  4. Very quick and easy to make. The taste was very delicate and light. I loved it!


I'm a former Paramedic / Fire Fighter who is now disabled and stay at home after breaking my back in the line of duty. I learned to cook when I was very young from my Dad & Mom. Of course in all US Southern Country cooking was loaded with all the bad stuff that make thing's taste wonderful. I'm now married to a Beautiful Lady who enjoys my cooking and like for me to experiment with new and exciting flavors. But cook books only can take you so far. So I happen to be looking recently for a recipe online and found Recipezaar ! WOW, ; So many to try and some many wonderful people to meet! I look forward to sharing recipes and cooking tips with you all !
