2 trout fillets 360 g
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar 65 mL
1 tbsp honey 22 g
2 tsp canola oil 10 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

The trout can be cooked using either an outdoor grill or in a thick-bottom pan on the stovetop.

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Pour the balsamic vinegar and honey into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat about 5 min until the volume is reduced by half and it reaches a syrupy consistency. Set aside.
  2. Lightly oil the trout fillet(s) on both sides. Heat a grooved, thick-bottom frying pan or a nonstick pan. When hot, add the trout, skin side down, and cook about 4 min until the edges become opaque and lighter coloured. Turn and cook an additional 4 min. Peel off the skin and add salt and pepper. Check with a fork to see if it is cooked through. Depending on its thickness, the trout is cooked in 8-10 min total. Alternatively, cook the fillets on a hot grill.
  3. Serve on the warmed plates. Drizzle with the balsamic syrup.


Any unused balsamic reduction can be stored a few months in the refrigerator for future use.
