This trout recipe is very easy to make, I used to make it quite frequently when I wanted something light and delicious to eat.
It was by chance that I cooked it for Robert one day in Milan, and that was it! I had him hooked, we have been married for 19 years.
That is why this trout dish is our favourite St Valentine’s meal.
I love those Lemon squeezers in an attractive box (2 per box) for squeezing lemon juice without getting juice on your hands, squirts in the eye or on your clothes, or pips on your food. (affiliate link).
