I'm not an enormous fan of fish, especially the really fishy-fish, like trout. But my friend Autumn had some trout and we thought "what-the-hey let's make it." So we did. And I'm told it was deeelicious (my part didn't actually get cooked all the way, so I couldn't eat it after the first initial bites, but Autumn loved hers, and I'll take her word for it).
It was prepared sort of make-shift-ly because 1. I've never made trout before, let alone a whole fish 2. We're college kids, so we used what was on hand (ie limes instead of lemons, which turned out to be a really excellent choice)
Anyway, so we stuffed it and surrounded it with butter, sliced up some limes, covered it in garlic salt and basil, and popped it in the oven for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Of course, Autumn has a really weird/tempermental oven, and the top side wasn't entirely cooked through (see above) and I could seriously taste the river it came from (it was fished out by Friend Paul from a river somewhere in southern Utah). But it smelled heavenly and as I mentioned before, Autumn said it tasted really good.
We ate it with rotini in cream sauce and sauteed zucchini and tomatoes. Yum.
