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.
