What could be easier and more delicious than trout, zucchini and tomatoes in a parchment packet? And it comes with less than 300 calories!



300 g
unsalted butter, at room temperature
250 g
light muscovado sugar
3 tsp
1 1/2 tsp
1 1/2 tsp
ground cloves
3 tsp
freshly ground cardamom
16 tsp
ground ginger
300 g
plain flour


  • PREHEAT oven to 400F. Lay 4 12×12-in. sheets of parchment on the counter. Lay a fish fillet in the middle of each piece of parchment. Season with salt, 1 tsp of herbes de Provence and fresh pepper. Divide zucchini, olives, tomatoes and butter evenly among packets. Sprinkle with remaining herbes de Provence. Drizzle with wine.
  • FOLD parchment in half over the fish. Double-fold around edges tightly in a half-moon shape, crimping packets well so steam doesn’t escape. Arrange packets on a baking sheet. Bake 15 to 17 min.
