Spicy Baked Sea Trout with Lemon Sauce

Spicy Baked Sea Trout with Lemon Sauce is an easy recipe that tastes rich and complicated. The lemon butter sauce gets the spice from the hot red peppers and the rich red color from the paprika. Can substitute other firm fleshed fish such as sole, whiting, flounder, sea bass.

  • 2 pounds of sea trout fillets or other firm fleshed fish
  • 2 Tablespoons minced onion
  • ¼ cup stick unsalted butter melted
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • dash black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon capers rinsed (optional)


  • Heat oven to 350 F.
  • Butter a glass casserole -large enough so that the fillets aren't crowded.
  • Lay the fillets in a single layer in the glass casserole.
  • Whisk the melted butter, lemon juice, minced onion, salt, paprika, red pepper flakes, black pepper until well blended. (Also add the capers if you wish.) Pour the sauce evenly over the fillets.

  • Serve immediately and spoon some additional sauce over the fillets.


  • We served our fish with herbed lemon and spinach quinoa.
