Orange Fired Trout Almondine

This sounds like some fancy-smanchy dish and a taskmaster of a recipe, but actually it is very simple.  It's more of a method than a recipe.  Here, I'll show you what I'm talking about.




Lay a piece of aluminum foil approximately 12 to 15 inches long on your counter top.  Spray one side with a non-stick cooking spray...I don't take any chances when it comes to the possibility of food sticking.  Place 3 thin orange slices in the middle of the foil.





Generously coat your fish fillet (rainbow trout shown here) with extra virgin olive oil.  Season to taste with Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper.  Place your fish on top of the orange slices.




Sprinkle sliced almonds on top of the trout.



Seal up your fish in the foil.



Place your foil packets on a pre-heated grill on high heat.  Grill about five minutes per side.


This was a real winner.  The delicate flavors, the moistness of the fish.  Give this a try with your favorite fish!

What a great idea and so easy!!! I love fish and would eat it more often if I had quick and easy recipes like this, thanks my friend.

I could eat fish every day (along with cake too!). I love how simple this fish recipe is. It looks wonderful and I'd never think it would be so easy. Great recipe!

I'm so glad you posted this! I've been making more fish and Ben's been turning his nose up b/c he's bored with "plain baked white fish..." HA!

This is definitely a keeper recipe Katherine. We love trout almondine and the oranges would only make it better.

That is a great technique and so simple.

Lauren said...

This sound delicious! I especially like the almond sliced on top of the trout. Healthy Fish Recipes are a great addition to any summer menu. I work with Better Recipes but personally I am always seeking out great fish recipes. My family and I are not vegetarians as we occasionally eat chicken so finding ways to make new varieties of fish and other seafood dishes is essential!
