Recipe Notes

This is a delicious trout recipe that goes really well with mashed cauliflower, garlic cauliflower rice, quick roasted green beans, or even Garlic Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts. But if you don't mind eating carbs, you can serve this fish with a yummy Rice with Mushroom and Asparagus recipe or Leek Kalamata Rice.
