Baked Whole Rainbow Trout with Almonds, Fennel and Orange

This healthy recipe makes a delicious light supper or lunch on its own, or can be paired with a beetroot salad for a bigger plateful.

The cooking time for the trout will depend on the fish and your oven. The last thing you want to do is overcook the trout so check it after 20 minutes and make any adjustments you feel are necessary.
