Best way to cook rainbow trout?

Hello fellow chowhounders.
I am making Rainbow trout tonight for my man. I am thinking about just using salt, pepper and olive oil and oven cooking. I like tasting the fish. Any recommendations on other ways to cook/season it without killing the flavor?
This Rainbow trout is USA farmed. Good thick cut. Small scales.
I sometimes stuff the cavity with a few sprigs of fresh dill when oven baking as you describe. I don't use lemon juice with fresh water fish.
YEARS ago, when nephew was about 4-5, we went "fishing". Small-ish pojust teeming with trout... big enough to catch. Was a great outing for a little kid since he caught SEVERAL fish... ya paid by the fish! Kiinda gross, but he was enthralled when the heads kept moving after his Dad cut them off! Seem to remember, just S&P and into pan with butter/oil... and lemon to squeeze over.
