Marinated Steelhead Trout with Baked Potatoes

Here is another recipe with the fresh steelhead trouts that my dad caught in Michigan.  This time, I marinated the fillets in olive oil, garlic and herbs, and baked it.  I served it with baked potatoes.  This is one of my favorite ways to prepare salmon and steelhead trout.


  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 6 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt (I used about 1/2 teaspoon this time)
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon of parsley, chopped
  • 2 (6 oz) fillets of steelhead trout (or salmon)
  • your favorite baking potatoes (I used potato medley from Trader Joe's), sliced into wedges

  • In a medium glass bowl, prepare marinade by mixing garlic, olive oil, basil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and parsley
  • Place fish fillets in the bowl to marinate, cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for about 1 hour, turning occasionally 
  • In the meantime, prepare potatoes by adding olive oil and herbs and mixing well
  • Preheat oven to 375 F 
  • You can start baking potatoes in the meantime, or at the same time the fillets are baking
  • After marinating the fillets, place them in aluminum foil, cover with marinade and seal well
  • Place in a glass baking dish and bake 35-40 minutes, until easily flaked with a fork
  • Bake potatoes until browned
  • After everything is done, let cool and serve with your favorite wine

Prijatno!  Enjoy!
