Stuffed Trout and Summer Squash

Cooking stuffed trout is not only nutritious it is fun and can create memories that last a lifetime. The trout can easily be found at most groceries for a reasonable price. We usually cook them whole and then pull the meat from the bone with the fork. It’s also very traditional to eat it with rice pilaf. Vinaigrettes and fruit purees are a great accompaniment here too.

  4. Stuff these ingredients into the belly area of the trout and place on a sheet pan or baking dish and into the oven. Bake at 300 for 25 minutes.
  5. Simmer the squash in a sauté pan with the cooking oil for 15 minutes on low heat until soft.
