The other night it was my husband's birthday and I wanted to take him some place extra special. I will admit before my husband met me he did not know or appreciate good food. That all changed when he married into my family. My family thrives on good food. We love cooking good food and we love going to tastey new restaurants and enjoying good food!
Now onto the cajun trout. Each and every family member in our house loves fish! Like it is super weird. My kids eat fish like normal kids eat chicken nuggets. They love it! When I made this easy easy fish my kids ate their piece plus mine. I was pretty upset that I didn't get my whole helping of fish haha. But hey if my kids want 2 servings of fish I will take it!!! This was actually the first time my kids have ever had trout. After my husband and I tried the branzino whole fish straight from the Mediterranean Sea with tail on it and all from Prado. I figured I should venture out a little more in the fish department. And let me tell you I am so glad that I did because my kids just loved it!!!
So first I took my fish and put it skin side down on a baking sheet and brushed my new olive oil from Prado on the top of my fish. Let me tell you that there is a different in good quality olive oil! So go out and get some. At least to use every once in a while! Try this kind! Ok back to the fish, I then sprinkled the fish with cajun seasoning (I did it lightly because I wanted my baby girl to eat it but if you family handles spice you can add more) and turned on the oven to broil mode. And placed the baking sheet about 4-6 inches from the heat and baked for 4-5 minutes or until the fish flakes easily. Top with fresh parsley and serve! Easy and Fast!
If you don't have any cajun seasoning or can't find any at a store close to you here is a recipe for one!
1 Tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons sea salt
