Trout Stuffed with Sundried Tomato and Basil Quinoa

Serves 4
Time 1 hr 5 min
Preparing stuffed trout is both easy and impressive as you can find them already butterflied and deboned at your seafood counter. What you might need to do though is to remove the tiny pin bones that run along the middle of the fillets. Simply pull out with your fingers or tweezers before stuffing.

  • 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

Method

Soak sundried tomatoes in hot water for 15 minutes to soften; drain and chop.

Meanwhile, place quinoa, 2 cups water and salt in a medium saucepot and bring to a boil.

Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 10 minutes. 

Add sundried tomatoes, cover and continue to cook 8 to 10 minutes or until water is absorbed. 

Fluff with a fork. 

Stir in basil, pine nuts and lemon zest.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. 

Prepare trout by brushing the inside flesh and outside of fish with oil. 

Arrange trout in an oiled rimmed baking sheet or large baking dish and stuff each with about 3/4 cups quinoa mixture. 

Bake until fish is opaque throughout, 22 to 25 minutes. 

Serve with lemon wedges.
