Added fennel to the roast. Served with asparagus and new potatoes. Delicious!

Did this with salmon trout and it was delicious, a lovely simple weekday dinner with a green salad. Yum

Delicious! Didn't have balsamic vinegar but all other ingredients. Added mushrooms to pepper & tomatoes. Accompanied with jacket potatoes & steamed veg.

This worked out very nicely. Simple, tasty, and easy on the calories.

Delicious .... I part cooked the peppers, garlic & tomatoes in oven for 15 mins then removed. Half an hour before serving, I put trout and almonds on top then baked for 20 minutes. Result superb...

Hubby and I just cooked this for our tea. Yummy. Filleted a trout a friend caught yesterday. Trout fillets only took 10 mins to cook. Served with saddleback potatoes and peas, mmmmmm! Wll definitely be cooking this again.

I really liked this one. Overcooked the fish because everyone said it needed more time than 15 min, mine did not.. Forgot about the ruccola and lemon (Even though I had both in my fridge), still okay! Served with rice!

Hubby and I liked this, but the only problem was, as trout has a lot of bones in (I had taken out as many as possible with tweezers!) every time I bit into a crunchy almond I was worried it was a crunchy bone! Might leave the almonds out next time...

Like Sarahs I add potatoes to the roasting tin, and this made a great quick and tasty meal.
However, I feel that the almonds make this dish - the texture really adds to it, and the flavour complements the trout perfectly. Have made it without almonds when I forgot once and it was still nice, but I would definitely try and remember to add them.

Really liked this, despite not really thinking much of the almonds (they don't really add anything,will omit them next time). The trout needed longer than it says in the recipe here though, after 15 mins it was nowhere near done. We included some new potatoes too in the roasting tin which worked well.

Brilliant! Have since tried lots of variations on this to use up seasonal vegetables. I sometimes fry the vegetables gently before putting them in the oven to make sure they are cooked through.

Really messed this one up. I think the trout fillets I used were too big and so I didn't cook them for long enough and they were almost raw in the middle. I ended up microwaving them which wasn't great.

I missed out the almonds , but otherwise did as the recipe suggested...........absolutely delicious. Will do again soon ! !
