Trout Stuffed With Dates

This is a North African version of trout in foil packets. The spices, combined with the dates and rice, are a wonderful combo and the aroma is divine! This is also good if you use banana leaves to wrap the trout. The leaves give it a slightly different flavor, but it works. Try a side of Saffron Rice (my recipe #502997) but use almonds in place of the pistachios.

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Rinse the trout under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels. Season the cavities lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Combine the dates, rice, HALF the onion, the coriander, ginger, cinnamon, almonds and HALF the butter in a bowl. Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon the stuffing in the fish cavities and place each fish on a well-greased, double sheet of foil. Brush the fish with the remaining butter, season with salt and pepper and divide the remaining onion among the four parcels.
  • Wrap the fish neatly and seal the edges of the foil.
  • Place the parcels on a large baking trap and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. Serve with a light dusting of cinnamon.
