Baked Trout with Orange, low in calories

By 18/02/2015

This great recipe was given to my mum by a friend. It is super quick as it takes only minutes to put together so it is ideal when you are tired after work or if you just don't want to spend too much time in the kitchen.

Buy trout fillets to make life easier instead of whole trout. All you do is squeezing an orange over the fillets then sprinkling over parmesan, breadcrumbs and a dash olive oil.Β  You won't know parmesan is there as it just adds lightly to the flavour.

Trout and orange are a fabulous combination just make sure you don't overcook the fillets and be generous with orange juice as it gives a fantastic flavour to the fish!

Serve with salad, rustic bread or cus-cus, steamed rice, potatoes or quinoa.

I have made this so many times. If you make it please let me know what you think!

    Dear Alida,
    They say “simplicity” is the best. I think that is so true and your recipe proves that. Fabulous fish, looks beautiful. Especially now that Lent is upon us this fish dish is perfect for a Friday night or any night’s dinner. Love the fresh orange juice on top with the cheese and breadcrumbs. The flavor must be very refreshing…thank you for sharing this one dear friend…a must make on my list. Have a great rest of the day.
