I love trout! But I'm not much of a cook and I suck and making fish. But I'm good at following directions and I have an Instant Pot so I found some recipes and figured out how to make trout at home and it's delicious and easy!!!

One of the benefits of being grounded by our Governor is that I'm saving a lot of money and I'm learning new skills. I'm not much of a cook. I got out of the habit when we got dogs and I started making their food. We used to eat out a lot, which is expensive and not the healthiest. Today, I plan meals, I go grocery shopping once a week, and I'm giving my Instant Pot a workout.

I won't bore you with a ton of words about my history with trout and what it means to me. I'll just say that I love trout. It's good.

Making Trout in the Instant Pot

Ingredients

  • Trout
  • Garlic salt
  • Lemon pepper (no salt)
  • Lemon

Making Trout

  • Cut the trout into serving sizes.
  • Sprinkle the trout with the seasons listed above, add as much or as little as you want.
  • Put lemon slices on the trout (I try to cover most of the fish).
  • Wrap the trout in aluminum foil.
  • Stack in the Instant Pot.
  • Seal and set for 15 minutes (manual setting).

When cooking is done, release the pressure and serve. The skin will come right off (I use a spatula to lift the fish from the skin). And I toss the lemons.

Combine with the sides of your choice. I made sauteed zucchini, yellow squash, and mushrooms.

Trout is More than Just Delish

I don't know how many calories are in a meal of trout, but I do know that this is a low calorie meal that is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and protein. If you're worried about mercury, trout is a low on the risk scale, making it a healthy fish to add to your diet. And trout is rich in Vitamins B12 and D along with other nutrients.

Basically, I'm killing it on the healthy meal scale.
