Serving Size
Number of Servings
    • 1/4  cup  panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
    • 2  tablespoons  finely chopped hazelnuts, toasted
    • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
    • 1/2  teaspoon  grated lemon rind
    • 1/2  teaspoon  minced fresh thyme
    • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
    • Cooking spray
    • 4  (6-ounce) trout fillets
    • Lemon wedges (optional)



Preheat oven to 400°.  Combine the first 6 ingredients in a small bowl.  Line a baking sheet with foil; coat foil with cooking spray. Arrange trout in a single layer on baking sheet. Sprinkle hazelnut mixture evenly over trout. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.   The nut-and-breadcrumb crust brings welcome texture to the fish.
