This is a fantastic fresh and healthy dish for the summer that can be done with a relatively small amount of equipment and only one Chef’s knife, if you have the right one. The best bit about this recipe is its versatility. You can add any herbs you like to the trout to get your favourite flavours in there.
Adults: Preheat the Oven to 180C/370F.
Together: Wrap each trout in a large piece of foil, sealed at the edges, but with a gap in the top. Add a large splash of white wine and herbs, season to taste, then seal the top.
Adults: Place them in a baking tray on the middle shelf of the oven for roughly 30 minutes.
Adults: At 15 minutes, boil new potatoes and remove at the same time as the trout.
Adults: After 20 minutes, boil the broccoli for 2 minutes and drain.
Adults: Add 1 Tbsp oil to the pan you just used, along with the chili and dill. After another 2 minutes, return the broccoli to the pan and add salt and pepper. Serve immediately when hot.
Adults: Carefully remove the trout from the foil and serve with a slice of fresh lemon, then drain the new potatoes and serve with a small knob of butter.
Adults: Tip – if you have guests that don’t want to fillet the fish on their plate, use a decent paring knife and remove the upper fillet from the spine downwards.
