This is a taste treat and so easy to prepare. My trout was quite large ( 2 generous servings) and 25 minutes cooked it perfectly. This will be made many times in the future

Super easy and tasty too. In my photo you will note that my trout is not as colorful as QueenBea's and this I believe is as a result of what the fish ate in the wild. Of course that bit of info has nothing to do with the recipe. I used the non-stick foil and didn't double it as it is a heavier weight to begin with. I also used chives rather than the green onions suggested. The fish was moist and flavorful. This recipe would work with many varieties of fish and I will be using again and again. Made for Billboard Tag.
