15 Healthy Dinners to Start 2015: Baked Steelhead Trout with Chimichurri Sauce

IMG_1980We’re officially almost finished – recipe #13 in the 15 Healthy Dinners to Start 2015. We eat fish about once a week, and this week the fishmonger had a nice sale on Steelhead Trout.

Generally speaking, I prefer Rainbow Trout over Steelhead Trout, but the fishmonger just advised me to treat it more like salmon, and it turned out delicious!

I had our fishmonger filet and debone the fish, then simply sprinkled it with salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice.  Then they went into the oven at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, I’d been defrosting a portion of the chimichurri sauce I’ve made before, and when the fish was done, simply ladled it across. The fresh, citrusy chimichurri sauce paired excellently with the fish, and paired with a salad and whole grain rice made a filling meal for under 500 total calories.

Only five more recipes left till we’re done with the series!  What healthy dishes have you enjoyed so far in 2015?
