20-Minute Baked Steelhead Trout Recipe Is As Simple As It Gets

Steelhead trout (aka rainbow trout) is a meaty, flavorful fish that has many health benefits. According to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch, "steelhead trout farmed in the U.S. is one of the healthiest types of seafood that you can eat." Rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids, this is a fish you may want to consider adding to your menu planning.

This easy baked steelhead trout recipe could not be any simpler. Really. Just two ingredients and 10 to 15 minutes in the oven and you have a healthy meal the whole family will enjoy.

The steelhead trout is simply brushed with butter and seasoned with salt and pepper. The fish is baked in the oven until it flakes easily with a fork. Serve the simple baked fish with a salad, vegetable, grain or your favorite side dishes.
