How to make Honey Balsamic Steelhead Trout:
Seasoning the trout is the most important step. I keep the seasoning for this recipe fairly simple as to not overpower the dish. Sea salt, black pepper, and creole seasoning will do the trick.
To make the balsamic glaze, you’ll combine honey, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, white cooking wine (or wine of your choice), brown sugar, and minced garlic. The sweeter ingredients help to balance out the tartness from the balsamic vinegar. The glaze forms naturally as these ingredients are combined.
Pour the glaze on the entire filet and outline the fish with fresh broccoli. You can certainly use other vegetables in place of broccoli, but make sure it can hold up to the oven temperatures.
Vegetables good for baking with this Honey Balsamic Steelhead Trout include Asparagus, Bell Peppers, Brussels Sprouts (halved), Butternut Squash, Baby Carrots, and Cauliflower. You can also mix the broccoli in the sauce to give it a boost as well. There are a lot of benefits to eating this type of fish but the most important one for this dinner recipe will be the taste!
