2 servings
Preparation 5 min
Cooking 10 min

440 calories per serving 


2 trout fillets   360 g
1/4 cup slivered almonds   18 g
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed   3/4 lemon
3 tbsp butter, unsalted   40 g
1/2 tbsp canola oil   8 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan, taking care not to let them burn. Add the almonds then sauté over medium heat until they are golden (again, taking care so that they don't burn). Take the almonds out of the pan then keep them warm on a small plate in the oven.
  2. Cook the trout over fairly high heat, 2-3 min on each side, starting with the skin side down. Add the lemon juice, then lower the heat and cover. Cook 7-10 min, depending on the thickness of the fillet(s), until the trout is tender. Check with a fork to see if it is cooked through.
  3. Take the skin out. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover the trout with the almonds and serve.
