Baked Trout with Vegetables

baked trout vegetableThere are many reasons why I love blogging. From getting to 'meet' people from around the world, sharing experiences to learning different cultures and cuisine. One of my newly found friend is Olga of Mango & Tomato. A couple of months ago while browsing her blog, something caught my attention. Her dad was her guest blogger that day and he just made Baked Trout with Vegetables. I love fish. And vegetables. But I have never bake them together. In fact I have never baked any fish before.

I told her that I will try that recipe once I got hold of some trout and last weekend I finally got some .. err actually just 1. As usual I would add a few others of my favourite vegetable and ingredient. Here is my version of Baked Trout with Vegetables.

Baked Trout with Vegetables
serves 1

1 trout, cleaned and make 4 slits on each side
2-3 medium size potato, peeled and cut into chunks
1 carrot, peeled and cut into chunks
1 eggplant, cleaned and sliced 1cm thick
A handful of green beans, cut both ends and halves
1 red chili, core removed and julienned
Juice of 1 lime (or 2)
1 tbs light soy sauce
1 tbs sweet soy sauce
2 garlic, finely chopped
A dash of cayenne pepper

1. Preheat oven 375-400F

2. Season the fish with salt (inside and out) and lay it on the oiled pan.

3. Put lime juice, soy sauces, garlic, salt, cayenne pepper and tarragon in a bowl and mix well.

4. Lather the fish with the mix making sure that you stuff some of the coarser ingredients in between the slits and the inside of the fish. Pour the rest of the ingredients on to the fish.

5. Start laying out the vegetables around the fish and drizzle some salt and oil on top.

6. Bake for 20-30min.

I'm so glad you made this dish! I can't wait to tell my dad about it :)

Great addition of other vegetables: that's why cooking is so creative.

Maybe I should make this dish now too?

This recipe looks healthy and delicious! I could make when I get home from work!

Salt N Turmeric said...

Olga, yes you should! And add more vegetables and 'concoction'.

Mama, there's no way Michael is gonna eat fish with head and bone attached! lol.

Wiffy, thank you. Im sure gonna make this again.

BoLnT, baked trout with vegetables is a simple and delicious recipe.

MTH, why ask your grandmother when you can make it yourself? ;)

Maya, you wont regret it. To me the eggplant really makes the different. Next time Id add more.

That looks good. I am going to have to try cooking a whole fish some time soon.

Ms eNVy said...

I've always wondered what to do with trout .. this looks simple enough .. cut up vegs .. trout .. terus masuk oven .. my kind of one dish meal :)
Thanks for sharing .

VG said...

Peter M said...

Nicely done...I'm a big fan of whole fish and this one has trout...another fave of mine.

Salt N Turmeric said...

Cynthia, blogging makes the world smaller. :)

Kevin, do try this whole trout recipe. Just don't eat the bone. lol.

Envy, same with me and this is actually my 1st time eating trout! If you make this, add more veggie and concoction. Tak menyesal punya. :)

Vin, yes I 'caught' the fish at the supermarket. ;)

Lyana, this is good to make when you're busy doing something like packing. ;) So easy to make and takyah nak jaga or stir.

Peter, yes i can see that you like whole fish. :)

Farina, when i first open this page, i seriously thought u went out fishing and caught yourself a trout! hahaha i was impressed ; ) I am such a amateur at cooking and simply dont like it enough to try this daring dish but i shall return often for more of your easy to follow recipes = ) I went to Olga's blog and her dishes are so motivational and out of the ordinary, truly daring cook!

Bren said...

i'm loving the eggplant! geesh! and yes, food blogging is great! glad you and I met and connected as well! :)

Salt N Turmeric said...

Mush, me fishing? and cleaning the fish? hahaha. Fishing, maybe. If someone would put the worm up for me but not cleaning the fish. I dont know how. This is no way a daring dish my dear. Just make the concoction, cut up the veggies, lay them on the baking pan and bake. That is all. No need to check pun. Try lah, tak menyesal i cakap you. ;)

Bren, i LOVE eggplant. Can't get enough of them. Yes, loving the fact that I met so many talented cook/chef (like you!) while food blogging. :)
