Spicy Lemon Trout

“If my neighborhood market has fresh trout fillets when I need a quick, no-fuss dinner, I buy them. Stuff the fillets with lemon slices and a handful of whatever fresh herbs you have in the fridge, and run under the broiler for a few minutes per side. Serve with a simple green salad.”—Phillip Rhodes, Deputy Editor

Phillip's go-to dish follows the same procedure as Spicy Lemon Trout. This recipe uses dried herbs but we love Phillip's version with fresh.
