Herb Baked Trout

This happened by accident. I sent my honey to the store for Salmon but got Trout instead. Although I have absolutely no problem returning groceries to Costco, we were hungry and the quickest way to eat was by cooking the trout. Let me just say, that mistakes can be miracles in disguise. I was pretty impressed. It's not hard to cook any fish but they all have different flavors. Pair this with a nice dry, white wine and rice and you've got a baby maker on your hands. Picasso, my baby love even loved it and he's not a fish fan.
