|Trout baked in Foil|
Baking a trout in foil is a good way of cooking a large trout or fillets because it keeps the fish nice and moist. This recipe uses the basic ingredients but you can add almost anything you like for a bit of variety.
- 1 2-3lb Cleaned Trout (or trout fillets)
- 2 oz Butter
Few slices of lemon
- Selection of Fresh herbs (thyme, parsley, chives, etc)
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Glass of white wine (Optional)
Place a large sheet of aluminium foil into a baking tray and place the trout on the foil. Make a few diagonal cuts in the trout skin to help the flavours penetrate and then season inside and out with the other ingredients.
Wrap the foil loosely around the fish to make a foil parcel, folding the edges over to seal in the juices.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180° C for 15-20 minutes per lb (35-45 minutes per Kg). Fillets, being thinner, only need about the half the regular cooking time.
