Zesty Baked Trout


2 rainbow trout fillets
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, sliced and seeded
1 lemon, sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Rinse fish and pat dry.
  3. Rub fillets with olive oil, and season with garlic salt and black pepper.
  4. Place each trout fillet on a large sheet of aluminum foil.
  5. Top with jalapeno slices, and squeeze the juice from the ends of the lemons over the fish. Arrange lemon slices on top of fillets.
  6. Carefully seal all edges of the foil to form enclosed packets. Place packets on baking sheet.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of fish. Fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
