Baked Trout Fillets Recipe

Moist tender trout is draped in a creamy Parmesan cheese coating that makes this dish elegant enough to serve company. "I picked up this recipe at the campground where we were staying," says Mary Zimmerman of Spring Lake, Michigan. "I also use the delicious sour cream mixture on salmon."

"I usually don't leave reviews but I made this last night for my husband and I and it was DELICIOUS! It was so simple to make and we ate it all up! I usually do a Parmesan crusted chicken with a mayo and parm cheese mixture on top so I was curious about the sour cream but it was soooo yummy! We will DEFINITELY be using this recipe again and again! THANK YOU!"

"Amazing recipe, we substitute the sour cream with greek yogurt to make it healthier, and it is one of the best fish recipes I have ever made!"

"So simple and so delicious! My family loved this recipe, including my two kids, ages 10 and 12, who would never eat sour cream but nonetheless ate every bite. The parmesan cheese made it work for them. I will make this again, and try it on other types of fish too."
