How to Cook Trout

How to Cook TroutWhether you are in a big RV, snuggled up in a nice romantic cabin or roughing it at a campsite, you can still impress the crowd with this recipe.


Difficulty: Moderately Easy

15 minute Gourmet Trout

Things You’ll Need:
  • Trout fillets
  • Mayonnaise
  • Butter
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • Lemon
  • Aluminum foil
Step 1
Line a baking sheet, pan or in a pinch just triple up some aluminum foil and fold the edges to make a pan. Rub some butter on the pan to help keep the trout from sticking.
Step 2
Lay the fillets, skin side down on the foil. Drop about one big tablespoon of mayonaise on each and coat evenly until you can't see through to the trout.
Step 3
Shake the Old Bay on liberally. Cut butter off in about 1/4-inch slices and lay all over the fillets. Now squirt some lemon juice all over the meat.
Step 4
Bake in an oven, if you are in a RV or cabin, at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. After the time is up, switch to broil for two minutes to give it a nice brown coating.
Step 5
Cook over an open campfire with a little more patience. Place the pan about 6 inches above the hot coals and watch them carefully. It should still only take about 10 minutes until the mayonnaise coating starts to boil. Test the fish to make sure it is done by making sure it is flaky.

Tips & Warnings

When cooking over an open fire it is best to make a hood out of foil to hold the heat in more evenly
