I found this recipe whilst browsing The Londoner… which is where I find all of my recipe inspiration, if I’m being honest. Rosie is a culinary goddess! You can find her version, using seabass, and much better photos, here.

We opted for trout, green beans, new potatoes and tomatoes, for our take on things.

Ingredients (serves 2)
2 fillets of fish (your choice)
2 handfuls of green beans (or veg of your choice)
12 small new potatoes
12 tomatoes
Salt and pepper
1 lemon
1 handful of dill
1 handful of rosemary and thyme

1. Begin by laying 2 squares of foil in a roasting tray. Lay your green beans and sprigs of dill on top.

2. On top of this goes your fish.

3. Add 2 slices of lemon to each piece of fish, a slither of butter, and lots of salt and pepper.
4. At the same time, lay your new potatoes in another roasting dish, sprinkle with salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme. Of course you don’t have to roast your potatoes. We just love roasted anything!

5. Fold foil around fish, creating two parcels. Make sure they are reasonably well wrapped so not too much air escapes.
6. Place both the fish and the potatoes in the oven for 25 minutes on about 180 degrees.
7. 5 minutes before the end, gently heat a teaspoon of oil in a pan and pan fry the tomatoes.

8. Be careful when unwrapping your fish, as it will be piping hot, and will let out lots of steam. Hence the blurry photos.
9. Serve either in the foil or out πŸ™‚
