Ingredients

  • 4 dressed whole rainbow trout
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • Glazed Baby Carrots

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat broiler to high.
  2. 2. Arrange trout, open with flesh sides up, on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Brush flesh evenly with 1 1/2 teaspoons oil. Drizzle juice over flesh. Sprinkle flesh with cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Broil 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
