When my in-laws were here last weekend, I cooked up a tasty dinner with local trout. I have long known about Trout from Sunburst Trout as it is served in many area restaurants. I wanted to cook something fun and new for Mary Jo and Alex and surprisingly learned they had never had trout! Guess they don’t “grow” trout up in Massachusetts?!! 🙂
I had intended to go directly to the source, but found myself at Earth Fare picking up some other goodies and they had a $3 off per pound special. I went for it!
I found a recipe in Lunch in Paris and based my dish off of it. I finally got the book since I had to give my mom’s Kindle back 🙂
The recipe, Trout with Cherry Tomatoes Baked in Foil (or Truite en Papillote), cooks the trout in foil in the oven. I dislike foil for cooking, but had some parchment paper so used it. I followed Elizabeth’s directions to season the fish with salt and pepper. She then scatters cherry tomatoes over the fish and adds a drizzle of olive oil. The only change I made was to add some spicy dijon mustard…just wanted a bit more flavor!
I baked the pouches in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. The result was quite lovely!
I added sides of roasted potatoes and asparagus. I really great comforting but light meal. Definitely recommend the book and all of its recipes! And of course local food 🙂
