  • 4 fillets trout
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest, plus 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon apple sauce
  • 3 broccoli stalks, peeled and julienned (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 bulb fennel, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and julienned
  • 1/2 tart apple, peeled, cored, and julienned
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Cut 4 pieces of parchment paper to 12 by 16 inches and arrange one fish fillet in the center of each. Season with salt and pepper and top with lemon slices and shallot. Drizzle with olive oil. To fold parchment, join long sides together and make a few 1/4-inch folds to seal. Fold ends like you're wrapping a gift and tuck underneath.

  3. Transfer packets to a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until packet is puffed and fish is cooked through, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest 5 minutes.

  4. In medium bowl, whisk together tahini, lemon zest and juice, applesauce, and 1 tablespoon water. Season with salt.

  5. Stir in broccoli, fennel, carrot, apple, and parsley until combined. Serve slaw with fish.

    This was good! Not just as great as the salmon/bok choy/avocado-orange recipe but pretty good still.
    This has nothing completely out of the ordinary so I don't know if I'll be making it too often.
    I couldn't find trout in my regular supermarket so I used pangasius instead. Not sure how the trout tastes so I went for another white fish.

    My wife and I love the recipe, but I'm disappointed the nutritional info is not provided.

    This is one of my favorite recipes from the action plan. It's simple, delicious, and very filling. I like that the applesauce counters the bitterness from the tahini. I used the grating attachment on my food processor to make the slaw. Will make again!
