The Fish Lady Recipe: Episode 3- Valentine’s Day Trout
Valentine’s Day Trout
- 2 trout fillets
- ½ cup carrots, julienned
- ½ cup green beans, trimmed
- 6 pats of butter
- 4 lemon slices
- 8 sprigs thyme
- ¼ cup parsley, chopped
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Salt & pepper
- 2 large sheets of parchment paper
Fold one of the parchment paper sheets in half lengthwise. Draw a half heart shape as large as possible. Cut out heart shape. On one side of the heart shape place ½ the carrots, ½ the green beans, 3 pats of butter, 1 trout fillet, 2 lemon slices, ½ the thyme and parsley, 1 tbsp olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
Fold over the parchment paper to close it. Starting at the top of the heart, make small folds by picking up the edge of the paper and folding it over on to the top about ¼ – ½ an inch. Then sliding your hands down the paper, continue picking up the edge and folding it over. When you get to the bottom of the heart, tuck the tail piece under the package.
Repeat with the rest of the ingredients to make 2 complete packets.
Place packets on a baking sheet and bake at 375 F for 16-18 minutes or until fish is flaky.
Serve in the paper to keep the food hot. Also makes for a nice surprise plus the aroma is amazing when the packet is first opened!
