Czech Trout Poached in Red Wine Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4


  • 8 small trout fillets (about 3 ounces each)
  • 1/2 bottle dry red wine
  • 6 shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, mashed
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 lemon
How to cook Czech Trout Poached in Red Wine:
  • Wash the fish gently in cold water and dry in paper towels. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Place the trout fillets in a large pot so all the trout fit together on the bottom. Add the chopped shallots, mashed garlic, most of the parsley, and bay leaf. Pour on the red wine.
  • Bring slowly to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes till the fish is just done. Carefully remove the trout from the pot and keep warm in the oven.
  • Turn the heat up high under the wine and cook it vigorously, uncovered, shaking the pot occasionally, till it is reduced by about half. Whisk in the butter to make a thin sauce.
  • Serve the poached trout with a little sauce, sprinkle with parsley and with lemon wedges on the side.
