1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Score each trout (slash diagonally) 3 times. Sprinkle trout lightly with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, combine herbs and use the mixture to stuff the slashes in the trout. Place the trout side-by-side in a buttered shallow baking pan. Top each fish with 4 alternating half slices of onion and orange. Mix butter, paprika, cognac and orange juice. Spoon over trout.
2. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until trout are lightly browned. Garnish with sprigs of the same herbs used to stuff trout. Serve.
