After a day sat in front of the laptop scratching my head and not getting very far, I decided that I needed some brain food. So I went hunting in the freezer and found some trout fillets. So I decided to cook them in parcels. I also made some potato boulangerie to go with it. Basically I peeled some potatoes and finely sliced them. I finely sliced an onion too. I put some of the onion at the bottom of a greased small casserole dish then half of the potatoes. I then put some more onion and some finely chopped garlic, seasoned with pepper. I then finished with more potatoes. I poured over 250 ml of vegetable stock. Seasoned with pepper and dotted some butter over the top. This was covered and put in the oven @ gas mark 5 for 60 mins.
I then made the parcels. Chopped a leek and divided it between two sheets of tin foil. I placed the trout fillets on top, then some lemon slices on top of the trout. I also placed some butter on top of the lemon and seasoned. I then folded over the tin foil and sealed two sides. Then poured in some vermouth and sealed it up. After the potatoes had been in for 60 mins, I put the trout in for 20 mins and took the lid off the casserole dish to brown the potatoes.
I can't really say that I feel any brainer, but fingers-crossed that I will feel the effects of the fish oils soon!
