It’s the New Year and I need more sheet-pan dinners in my life! Here’s the latest: Sheet-Pan Roasted Trout with Asparagus. John always complains about fish being too plain, so with this recipe I wanted to take things up a notch as far as flavor. But as usual, I also wanted a short list of ingredients and very minimal prep. Would it be possible? Yep!
This Sheet-Pan Roasted Trout (you can also use salmon) is drenched in a lemon-mustard-shallot-caper sauce, which is bursting with flavor. The only prep required is chopping the shallot and a little measuring and whisking — so easy! If you have dietary restrictions, you’ll also be glad to know this recipe is gluten and dairy free, and paleo- and keto-friendly.
If you’re okay with dairy, I love to dot a little butter on the warm trout as soon as it comes out of the oven. The creamy butter cuts the acidity of the lemon, capers and mustard for the perfect blend of flavors. For serving, the fish is delightful with the roasted asparagus and simple white rice. Enjoy!
