I love fish: making it, eating it, thinking about its nutritional benefits.
In my mind, if you buy a good quality, fresh fish, then it is almost ready to serve.. I love the taste of fresh, juicy fish, so I avoid over baking it or adding too much flavours, which would kill the real taste of fish.
Depending on the fish you choose, it contains different amounts of calories, minerals and vitamins. However, even though you choose fish that is filled with omega-3 fatty acids, you should not worry about calories, instead enjoy the amount of healthy fats that you gain, which help to keep your brain and heart healthy. What is more, these acids may decrease the risk of depression, diabetes etc. The list of benefits that one gets from any type of fatty fish is much longer.. But let’s stop here.
Fatty fish is good for you. That’s a fact.
It is good for lunch and dinner.. it is a good source of protein and can replace meat.
Talking about me, I mostly like two types of fatty fish: salmon and trout. Usually we eat trout for dinner on Sunday evening. Well, at least twice a month..
The recipe I am sharing with you is my favorite: easy to make, always tasty and healthy. So, in case you are thinking of having some fish for dinner.. I encourage you to buy some fresh trouts, follow the guidelines below and enjoy.
Makes 2 portions
2 trouts, cleaned
1 tbs lemon juice
2-3 cloves of garlic, sliced
4 cherry tomatoes, diced
a bit of fresh dill
salt, pepper, herbs
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Prepare two pieces of aluminum foil to put the trouts into.
- Season the trouts, then stuff each of them with fresh dill, salt, garlic and cherry tomatoes. Drizzle the outside and inside of the each trout with lemon juice.
- Wrap the trouts individually in foil, then bake for 15-20 mins.
- Serve with rice and oven roasted vegetables (I simply add the vegetables that I would like into the same baking sheet, season them and bake for the same amount of time as trouts).
