Cajun Trout



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!


So my husband and I ventured out to Scottsdale and went to Prado at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia. We were blown away by their amazing costumer service. Their staff made an impeccable impression on both of us! Right when I got there I received a sweet letter and a gift every foodie would appreciate! Good quality olive oil, balsamic vinegar and olives. (Don't worry I will share more about the olive oil later in my recipe!) We then enjoyed some yummy yummy food! My favorites out of everything were the caramelized cauliflower, burrata salad, branzino, and the carrot cake! After dinner my husband and I walked around the grounds of the hotel and sat next to the fire pit that they had. What a great memorable night! Here a few pictures of what we had so you know what you are getting when you visit there next time you are in Scottsdale, Arizona!





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!
