“A simple but flavorful preparation for trout. I am currently in love with thyme and have been putting a concerted effort into adding more fish to our diet. This recipe was a big winner with the whole family. Trout is a nice fish since it doesn't have an overwhelming flavor on it's own. Prep time includes time for marination.”
