Preparation : 5 min Cooking : 10 min
440 calories/serving


2 trout fillets 360 g
1/4 cup flaked almonds 18 g
1/4 cup white wine 65 mL
3 tbsp butter, unsalted 40 g
1/2 tbsp olive oil 8 mL
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g

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. Deglaze with the wine, 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.

Very easy to make and very tasty. Served with a side of green beans and small potatoes. The kids decided it's a keeper.

Did not enjoy this. It was very bland - very disappointing.

The roasted almonds off set the rainbow trout we used perfectly- we look foward to enjoying it again!
