Trout with salad of butternut squash , green beans feta and thyme
As I have said before my mother is an impressive cook for a girls night we hit the cinema ,though dinner out would be nice , after a lot of time away from home recently I really needed to cook at home .
I decided on a cooking trout , my stepdad is not a bid fan of fish with bones so I knew it would be a hit . Its also very quick to cook in the oven post cinema
I stuffed the trout with a little lemon thyme , drizzled with olive oil , salt and pepper , wrapped in foil and baked at 180deg for 30 minutes it comes out moist and juicy
Accompanied by an autumnal salad of roasted butternut squash ( thickly sliced , drizzled with olive oil and roasted in the oven at 200deg for 30 mins) , steamed green beans , feta cheese and a little lemon thyme dressed with a little lemon juice olive oil and wholegrain mustard
I realised I am a massive fan of green beans in salads , click on any of the images for recipes.
Steamed baby turnips and green beans dressed with tahini , chopped roasted garlic , fresh lemon juice , sesame seeds , olive oil .
Chopped tomatoes , grean beans , gem lettuce , boiled eggs , tinned anchovies and olives dressed with olive oil and vinegar
gently steam the french beans til all dente
mix with any beans you fancy ( these are butter beans , borlotti beans and flagolet beans)
dress with a mixture of white wine vinegar ( you could also use lemon juice) , olive oil ,salt pepper , whole grain mustard and hanfuls of freshly chopped fennel leaves. Finally crumble over some goats cheese .
If you need some meat add some crispy cooked bacon or chicken or even tuna but you might want to leave out the goats cheese if you are using fish
