Method

Heat the grill to high. Lay the fillets, skin side down, on an oiled baking tray. Mix together the breadcrumbs, butter, parsley, lemon zest and juice, and half the pine nuts. Scatter the mixture in a thin layer over the fillets, drizzle with the oil and place under the grill for 5 mins. Sprinkle over the remaining pine nuts, then serve with the lemon wedges and a potato salad.

Very tasty, and quick to prepare and cook. I used the zest of 2 lemons with the juice of 1 and left out the pine nuts. I also didn't bother to drizzle with oil as I felt that the fish would be oily enough without it. My trout fillets cooked perfectly in 5 mins under a hot (200 degrees C) grill. The breadcrumb topping didn't burn, probably thanks to the lemon juice. The parsley and lemon combo was great. I'll definitely make this again.

Used a mixture of basil and parsley. Also only used zest of the lemon not the juice, since it's served with lemon wedges. Served it with a potato, olive and roast pepper salad- amazing. My OH even volunteered to do the dishes it was so good!

Loved this recipe! We had no parsley so used basil instead; it worked really well with the lemon. The only thing I would say is to be careful with the cooking time as my breadcrumbs began to brown extremely fast (a diplomatic way of saying I burnt them a bit).

Very good, used basil instead of parsley and fewer breadcrumbs but really tasty

Didn't have pine nuts, so used sesame seeds instead and replaced parsley with basil, as I don't like parsley.

It was really nice, but I think it would go better with some other kind of fish (salmon or maybe white fish).

Will be making this again, but with different fish.

to die for- just try it- incredibly zingy

The flavours were lovely, but the breadcrumbs started to burn - next time I will have the grill lower, and cook for a few minutes more.
Definitely one to do again though.

Had to substitute the herbs as we didn't have parsley in, and one family member doesn't like pine nuts so we omitted them, but it was still scrummy. Will definitely be having it loads, as it doesn't overpower the trout's natural flavour.

We found it to lemony. My husband had to eat with ketchup to "save" the flavour.

super simple, cook fatter trout longer - was in the grill/oven (??) for more than 10mins and still could have been cooked more. more fresh lemon once it's done and delicious. made it with a mustard potato salad...super
