Fast Food: Lemon Thyme Trout Fillets

Weekdays are extremely busy at my house and many times we are rushing home right at dinnertime which leaves zero time for tedious dinnertime prep or cooking. There's no way around it. Eating well takes a little bit of work. However, it doesn't mean it has to take a lot of time. Fast food takes a whole different meaning when you find and learn recipes that take as much time as it takes for you to get in your car and drive to the nearest drive thru! This recipe for Lemon Thyme Trout is a fast food recipe you'll want to cook over and over. Try the marinade with other types of fish like salmon and even shrimp. It is fast and delicious. lemon-thyme-trout-fillets-by-momma-cuisine
