Baked Trout with Mushrooms

Baked Trout with Mushrooms

Catching freshwater fish (like trout) and foraging for mushrooms are both popular pastimes in northern Italy, and the fruits of these activities come together deliciously in this simple dish of baked trout with mushrooms. Use whatever mushrooms are available just as they would in Italy, I love wild pine mushrooms or slippery jacks when they’re in season, otherwise I use something meaty like chestnut, king brown or Swiss brown mushrooms, or a mixture. Serve a simple radicchio salad with this baked trout if you like (see video below).

Serves 2

Ingredients
  • 1 x 400g piece ocean trout fillet, skin on, pin-boned
  • ⅓ cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt flakes, to taste
  • 50g butter, diced
  • 200g Savoy cabbage, finely sliced
  • 150g mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • Crusty bread, for serving
Method
  1. Remove fish from the fridge about 30 minutes before cooking.
  2. Wipe skin with paper towel to ensure it’s dry and remove any remaining scale.
  3. Check for bones and place in a shallow bowl skin side down.
  4. Chop parsley and garlic together and mix with the oil and a teaspoon of crushed salt flakes.
  5. Pour over the fish, spreading it all over the flesh, and set aside for 30 minutes or so.
  6. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200°C.
  7. Use a little of the butter to grease a baking dish.
  8. Shave cabbage finely, discarding any thick stems, and spread it out in the bottom of the baking dish.
  9. Slice mushrooms into bite-sized pieces and spread on top of the cabbage.
  10. Dot vegetables with remaining butter, adding extra to the outer edges that won’t be covered by the fish to help prevent them drying out.
  11. Pour wine over the top.
  12. Place fish on top, skin side up, pouring any of the marinade left in the bowl over it.
  13. Place in the oven and cook for 15–20 minutes, until fish is cooked to your liking. Then turn on overhead grill for 3–5 minutes to crisp skin.
  14. Remove from oven, set aside for a few minutes then serve with crusty bread.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.

Thanks so much for the Fresh & Easy Meal, it was excellent. We regularly get another meal kit delivery – your offering is vastly superior and a similar price, so big ticks.

I'm a competent cook whose learned so much from the Recipes+Videos Packs. The recipes are yummy and Roberta’s video guidance offers so many little tips to improve flavour and organise the flow of preparation. I enjoy her warmth, sense of humour, and ability to giggle at herself when she occasionally messes up.
