Week 19 – Asian Trout

So it was one of those weeks wandering aimlessly around the supermarket when Mr Gem spotted some trout on offer so we bought it without really having a plan of what on earth we were going to do with it.

So I made something up. 

Asian Trout


I was a bit perturbed when I got the fish out of its wrapper and it still had fins. I love food and cooking but I’m a bit squeamish when it comes to animal bits (I know its shocking for a food liking person!)

Anyway after attempting to cut the fins off and failing miserably I decided to go about cooking the fish.

I stuffed it with a butter mixed with ginger, lime, garlic and spring onion, then wrapped it in tin foil and popped it in the oven for around 20minutes, when it was done I served it with some sweet potato wedges.

Stuffed and ready to go into the oven

It was delicious, but a bit boney!
