An easy weeknight dinner that comes together in 15 minutes with little to no cleanup? Yes please! Our delicate, mildly flavored Brook Trout cooks to delicious perfection with a light but flavorful sauce right in a foil packet.
1 package Oceanbox Brook Trout
2 TB butter
4 cloves garlic
1 TB chopped fresh parsley
1 TB lemon zest
8 oz broccolini or broccoli florets
Optional lemon wedges and chopped chives for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place one large piece of foil on a baking pan. Place a 2nd piece of foil crosswise. Place Oceanbox Brook Trout and broccolini in the center. Season with salt and pepper. Combine butter, garlic, parsley, and lemon zest in a small bowl and drizzle over Brook Trout and broccolini. Tightly fold all 4 sides of foil in to make a packet. Bake for 15 minutes or until Brook Trout is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Serve topped with chives and a squeeze of lemon.
