  • Parchment paper
  • A rimmed baking sheet
  • Microplane zester


  • 1 ¼ lb Steelhead trout skin on
  • 2 tsp onion salt
  • ¾ tsp Kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 blood orange
  • 2 Tbsp fresh dill large stems removed


  • Season the trout. Preheat an oven to 275 F. Lightly pat the trout dry on both sides with a paper towel, then place on a parchment lined rimmed baking sheet. Season the flesh of the fish with 2 tsp onion salt, ¾ tsp Kosher salt, and ¼ tsp black pepper. Zest the lemon and blood orange over the trout fillet, then sprinkle small bits of the butter all over. Add 2 Tbsp of fresh dill leaves all over.
  • Slice the citrus. Using a sharp knife, thinly cut the lemon and the blood orange into ¼" thick slices. Alternate slices of citrus directly on top of the trout, covering the entire flesh of the fish.
  • Bake the trout. Cook in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the internal temperature reached 125-130F. Serve immediately!


  • If substituting onion salt with onion powder, increase the Kosher salt to a full 1 teaspoon.
