I love steamed fish. Its so healthy and really keeps its softness when cooked this way. Baking fish in foil with veg is a great way to get lots of flavour locked in the food. I love cooking salmon, trout, cod, and coley this way. These trout parcels are great for a bung it in the oven and leave it meal and then you can get on with other things.
Recipe (serves 2)
2 fillets of trout
2 sticks of celery
2 small carrots
1 large leek
Salt and pepper
2 splashes of olive oil
2 splashes of lemon juice (I love using my squeezy bottle)
2 squeezes of honey
2 splashes of soy sauce
8 new potatoes
Sprinkle of rosemary
- Peel the carrots and celery. Wash and chop into thin chunks/strips.
- Take the outer leaves away from the leek, wash and cut the same.
- Arrange the trout fillets in their own foil nest (enough foil to then wrap around them after). Season them with salt and pepper.
- Add a squidge of honey, lemon, soy sauce and olive oil to each fillet.
- Cover with the veg and wrap up each parcel.
- Bake in a preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes at 160oC
- While that is cooking, wash and half the new potatoes. Arrange on a baking tray and drizzle oil, salt, pepper and rosemary on them. Cook in the same oven for the last 20-25 minutes.
- Unwrap each parcel and serve with some of the potatoes.
Yummy! I know it is a little unconventional using soy sauce in the fish and then having potatoes with rosemary flavouring against it but I like it and it tastes good! If you would rather, it can be served with noodles or rice. Or you could omit the rosemary on the potatoes. If you cook it, why not post your comments or photos below!
