This simple fish recipe is seasoned with salt-free lemon pepper and paprika for a low sodium, heart-healthy protein entree. If you like it spicy, you could also add a dash of cayenne pepper.

  • rainbow trout fillets
    2 lbs
  • olive oil
    1 tbsp
  • salt
    1/2 tsp
  • salt-free lemon pepper
    1 tsp
  • paprika
    1/2 tsp


  1. Dry the fish fillets with a paper towel. Rub both sides lightly with olive oil (or use cooking spray). Combine the salt, lemon pepper, and paprika in a small bowl. Sprinkle the seasoning evenly over the fillet side of the fish.

  2. For grilling: Preheat grill on high heat. Place trout directly on the grill, fillet side down. Cook for 4 minutes. Turn fillets over and cook until fish flakes easily with fork, about 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. For baking: Preheat oven to 350° F. Place trout skin side down on a large sheet pan. Bake uncovered for 10-15 minutes, or until the trout flakes easily with a fork.
