Baked Trout with Fennel Potatoes

On 4th September 2015, This was Dinner

This was supposed to be Trout en Papillote but as I had no ‘papillote’ I baked it in foil Trout en feuille, if you will. Not quite as pretty but still very tasty.


  • Halve some baby new potatoes
  • Slice a couple of lemons
  • Finely slice a fennel bulb
  • Preheat the oven to 190ºc (fan)
  • Get some trout fillets, oil & seasoning ready


Blanch the potatoes in boiling salted water. Drain then transfer to a baking dish and toss in oil and seasoning along with the fennel. Add half of the lemon slices to the tray.

Bake these in the oven for 40 minutes, adding the trout to the oven half way through.

Place the trout fillets on some foil, season then place a couple of slices of lemon on top and wrap the foil well around the fillets. Cook in the oven for about 20 minutes.
