  1. Step 1

    Place the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook until the butter turns a golden brown color and takes on a nutty aroma. Reduce heat to very low and keep warm.
  2. Step 2

    Remove the heads from the trout, and place skin-side down on lightly greased foil-lined baking sheets. Lightly brush a little of the browned butter over the surface. Season generously with salt and fresh ground black pepper.
  3. Step 3

    Broil about 4 inches from the flame for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until fish flakes when tested with a fork. While the fish is cooking, turn the butter up to medium heat and whisk in the lemon juice. As soon as the mixture comes to a boil, add the parsley, and turn off the heat.
  4. Step 4

    When ready, serve the trout on warm plates with the hot lemon parsley brown butter spooned over the top. Serve lemon wedges on the side.
