Roasted Trout with Sundried Tomato Marinade

This was the fastest, easiest, most refreshing meal. It looks great, tastes great, and took under 25 minutes from start to end.

You need (serves 2):

  • A trout or salmon fillet about 2" thick and 5" by 6" in area
  • 2 tbs miracle whip or yoghurt
  • 2 tbs minced sun-dried tomatoes (I used dried, soaked them in hot water for 10 minutes, then minced them)
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper, plus more to taste
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced, divided
  • enough green beans for 2
  • 3/4 c orzo
  • 1 can chicken broth + 1 can water
  • 1 tsp butter
You can serve this with things other than green beans and orzo - this is just what appealed to me.

1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.

2. In a small bowl, mix about half of the minced garlic, the miracle whip/yoghurt, the sun-dried tomatoes, and the pepper.

3. Wash and dry the fish and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Smear the marinade over the fish and put the fish in the oven.

4. Put your broth on to boil and start trimming and washing your beans. When the broth boils, pour in the orzo.

5. When the orzo is almost done (about 15 minutes), put the beans in a saute pan with 1 tsp butter and the rest of the garlic. Saute on medium-high. By the time the beans are done, the orzo and the fish will be too! Make sure the fish is opaque throughout before serving.

  1. Roasted trout with a creamy sun dried tomato topping sounds so good!

  3. this looks delicious! i was looking a for a quick and easy fish dish. i'm going to try this tonight!


  4. I made this for dinner last night!

    Because salmon in Brno is kind of sketchy (expensive and not very nice-looking), I used a firm white fish. I added some pesto (maybe a tablespoon or so) and some parmesan cheese (enough to make it pasty-er, since I didn't dry the oil off of the sun-dried tomato, and added that pesto) to the mayo-garlic-sun-dried-tomato mixture. It was super tasty! We ate it with lemony garlic asparagus and some cous cous. Mnam, mnam.

    Thanks for the idea!

  5. Made it tonight. It sounded really good but I did not care for it. The flavors just didn't work for me. Thanks for the idea though...
