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 🙂

    Looks like a great meal! I remember trout fishing as a kid; is it healthier than other fish types? I haven’t heard a lot of press on it
