Smoked trout is one of my favorite proteins for meal prep. I usually smoke it on the grill or bake it in the oven. Tonight, I made it tens times better by adding a lemon butter caper sauce, perfect to compliment my lower carbohydrate (keto) diet.

Smoked Trout with Lemon Butter Caper Sauce

Ingredients

Ingredients for 6 hearty servings

  • 2lb wild trout (or six ~5oz pieces)
  • pinch of sea salt & pepper
  • spray olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons butter (I used Earth Balance)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons capers
  • juice from 1/2 lemon (or to taste)
  • 1/8 cup finely chopped parsley
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • Garnish
    • fresh parsley
    • cracked pepper or red pepper
Steps
  1. Fire up the grill (250F) or set oven to 400F.  Add a pinch of sea salt & pepper to the trout filet, then spray with olive oil.   If cooking on the grill, smoke for about 30 – 45 minutes.  If baking in the oven, back for 20-25 minutes until the flesh is flaky.
  2. While the fish is cooking, set a nonstick skillet on low-medium heat and add olive oil and garlic.  Flavor the oil by cooking the garlic for 3 to 5 minutes and be careful to not burn the garlic.
  3. Remove the skillet from the heat, then add the remaining ingredients to the skillet.  Quickly stir the sauce so that it turns into a semi-creamy sauce, then pour it over the freshly baked trout.
  4. Garnish and enjoy!
