Method

  1. Pour the stock over the couscous in a bowl, cover with cling film and leave until the couscous has soaked up the liquid. Stir the toasted pine nuts into the couscous along with parsley, lemon zest and juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Lightly oil 2 sheets of foil. Season the trout, then make 2 ‘sandwiches’ of 2 fillets with the couscous in the middle. Repeat with the rest of the trout and the couscous. Wrap the ‘sandwiches’ individually in foil, then bake for 15-20 mins. Serve with potatoes and salad.

Cheated lots by starting with smoked trout fillets but then added the couscous/lemon/parsley mix (with hazelnuts instead of pine nuts) and served with fresh salad. It took about 15 mins to prepare and was delicious.

I ran out of cous cous so I also did this with rice, and added softened onion, red pepper and garlic to the rice with pine nuts, parsley and lemon. An absolute hit!! Lovely.

This is easy and delicious, an excellent after work meal! I have also made it stuffed with rice instead of the cous cous for a family member who suffers from a gluten intolerance. The rice took a little more time to prepare than the cous cous, but the result was still delicious!
