Crispy Ranch Salmon

Trout also works incredibly well for this recipe. This recipe is creamy & crispy, the best of both worlds plus super quick & easy to make.

I have been buying trout a lot more lately because it is often cheaper than salmon!

Salmon and trout are very similar in flavour, texture and colour. Your average eater won't even notice the difference until they look at the skin side!

Trout fillet on a parchment paper lined baking sheet topped with homemade ranch and golden breadcrumbs. Garnished with sliced green onion, charred scallions on the side and lemon wedges

What you'll need:

Preheat the oven to 425F

Place the fish skin side down on a parchment lined baking sheet and season with salt and pepper.

Enjoy, my friends!
