Steelhead Trout with Honey Glaze

We all know eating fish is healthy for us. There are fish several recipes in Tastes & Treasures cookbook and here is another one to enjoy. I served it for a company dinner and it was a big hit, even with those who usually don't eat fish.

Steelhead Trout with Honey Glaze

1/4 cup butter
2 garlic cloves
2 TBSP honey or maple syrup
2 TBSP brown sugar
2 TBSP rice vinegar
2 TBSP Dijon mustard
2 TBSP Soy sauce

Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over low heat. Whisk in the ingredients.
Place the fish in the center of a rectangle of foil. Pour the glaze over the fish and fold the packet around the fish to allow it to marinate.

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Bake for 10 minutes + 10 minutes for each inch of thickness. So, a one inch thick fillet would bake for twenty minutes. 1.5″ would be 25 minutes.
The recipe makes enough glaze for a little over two pounds of fish.

It  could be done on the grill, but remember to not cook the fish over direct heat.
 On the grill it can be done in a foil packet as described.  Or a grill basket with top is very helpful. Spray the grill basket with Pam first. Place it skin side up, first. Once the fish has cooked, it falls apart, the skin sort of holds it together, making transfer a little bit easier.
Thanks to Home Ec 101 for this recipe.
