Baked Trout (Pečený Pstruh)
Here is a recipe for an insanely easy dish: a whole baked trout (pečený pstruh). I’ve been meaning to make this dish for a while, except that the grocery store I normally shop in (Giant) doesn’t have much of a seafood section. So I was really happy when few days ago I ventured into Whole Foods and found their amazing seafood selection.
Ingredients: whole trouts, butter, sides (such as potato and vegetables)
Prep Time: 40 minutes
Preheat the oven to 400F. Rinse the trout (pstruh), pat dry, and place on a baking pan along with about half a stick of butter (maslo). Bake for about 30 minutes. In the mean time, prepare your side dishes. I used boiled potatoes (varené zemiaky), but mashed potatoes or fries are also popular. I also steamed some green beans (zelená fazuľa).
And that’s it. Another popular side is canned fruit (or fruit compote, kompót). Enjoy! As a little aside, this trout was almost completely bones-free (the spine was removed at the store). Since we now have seedless melons and grapes, I guess we can also have boneless fish…
Speaking of green beans, you can use them to make a delicious green beans soup.Tweet
