3. Cook the Ocean Trout:

  • Pat the ocean trout fillets dry with paper towels and season both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Once the skillet is hot, add the trout fillets, skin side down, and cook for about 3-4 minutes, or until the skin is crispy and golden.
  • Carefully flip the fillets and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
