Lemon Herb Roasted Trout

A light, citrusy and herbaceous trout that is a must try. This recipe is so easy to create and cooks with such natural flavors, I love it. The garlic, thyme, and lemon zest flavor the trout so well. To the zest the lemon, I use my FAVORITE kitchen tool the zester. It works great for mincing ginger, garlic and zesting lemons/limes. It completely optimizes the citrus flavor in the fish, highly recommend.

I recommend enjoying this trout with roasted vegetables, pictured is a roasted endive, asparagus and zucchini. It is perfect to roast along side the trout and makes cooking this meal so simple. Trout also pairs nicely with roasted carrots and potatoes. Flavor with olive oil, garlic and sea salt, then enjoy!
