This parchment-baked trout is about as simple as dinner gets. It's also fast and requires virtually no cleanup.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange fillets in the center of parchment rectangles. Season with salt and pepper and top with tomatoes. Drizzle with oil.

  • Fold parchment closed and transfer to a rimmed baking sheet.

  • Bake until fish is cooked through, 12 to 14 minutes. Top with basil before serving.

Cook's Notes

For foolproof folding, arrange fillet in the center of a 12-by-16-inch parchment rectangle. 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.
