Oven Baked Thai Trout

I picked this recipe up from a little cookery course I did in Ko Samui in Thailand a few years ago. I oven bake it as in Ireland we are prone to terrible weather, so a BBQ only comes out a handful of times a year. But if you are blessed with sunny skies, then this is AMAZING on a BBQ.Seriously........Try it!

Serves 4


  • 2 Whole Sea Trout, gutted with head and tail intact
  • 5 tbsp of fish sauce
  • Chopped coriander
  • 1 lemon, cut into thin slices
  • juice of a lime
  • 1 finely chopped red chili
  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • Minced garlic clove
  • Chopped mint

  1. Place the trout on oiled tin foil in a baking tray
  2. Douse liberally with fish sauce, the smell at this stage is rank
  3. Allow the trout to soak up the 'rank' fish sauce for 30 minutes or so
  4. Place the lemon slices in the cavity of the fish
  5. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees
  6. Put the fish in the oven for 15-20 mins, depending on the size of the fish
  7. In the meantime to make the sauce, in a jug add the fish sauce, juice of a lime, chopped herbs, chili, honey, garlic. Add a little water to dilute if the taste is too strong.
  8. Remove the fish from the oven and serve straight to the table as it it and pour over the sauce, and sprinkle with a little extra coriander for effect.
  9. Serve with  sticky basmalti rice
This recipe is tweaked because there are lots of ingredients from thai cuisine that aren't readily available to us here in Ireland. eg palm sugar, I use honey instead. 
Either way this is num nums!
