Pan Seared Spiced Trout

shyratrout  We got in a little late tonight from baseball and soccer practice and instead of stopping at a fast food place,  I decided to whip up something really quick and easy for dinner.  I made a quick trip to our neighborhood Sprouts and picked up some fresh Trout! Once I got home and into my kitchen, I was able to get dinner on the table in just 20 minutes!  While the fish was cooking, I placed the broccolini in a microwave steam bag and set the microwave for 2 1/2 minutes.   The fish took less than 10 minutes to cook!  Check out the easy recipe below because I really think you’ll like this one!


  • 4 trout fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Your favorite seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 lemon quartered


  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet
  2. Place the trout fillets skin side down and cook for 3-4 minutes. Using a spatula, press down on each fillet for  even cooking.
  3. Season the top of each trout fillet equally with your favorite seasoning, red pepper flakes and cilantro.
  4. Cook trout for another 2-3 minutes
  5. Squeeze a little lemon juice over the top of the trout and serve with your favorite side dish.
