Broiled Cumin Trout

How Slovaks do fish without frying it. Fillet of trout seasoned with cumin and cooked perfectly

Broiled Cumin Trout


  • 2-4 trout fillets (tilapia, sea bass, or flounder will work as well)
  • 4 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mix the olive oil with cumin in a small bowl. Add salt and pepper to your liking.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 400° or turn the broiler on low.
  3. Prepare your broiler pan or cookie sheet with a layer of foil.
  4. Brush each fillet on each side with the mixture of ingredients.
  5. Place fillets on the pan and cook until done.

Quick Notes

I generally prefer to broil the fish, but you can also bake it.
