  • 2 fresh trout fillets (about 6 ounces each)

  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves (or 1 teaspoon dried thyme)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 pound fresh green beans, washed and trimmed

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional, for garnish)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. For the Baked Trout:

    • Pat the trout fillets dry with paper towels and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

    • Season the fillets with minced garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Be sure to season both sides for maximum flavor.

    • Lay the lemon slices on top of the fillets.

    • Drizzle olive oil over the fillets to keep them moist during baking.

  3. Bake the trout in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

  4. Meanwhile, let's prepare the Steamed Green Beans:

    • In a steamer basket or a pot with a steamer insert, add water to the bottom and bring it to a simmer over medium heat.

    • Place the washed and trimmed green beans in the steamer basket.

    • Steam the green beans for about 4-6 minutes, or until they are tender-crisp. Avoid overcooking them to retain their vibrant color and nutrients.

  5. Once the trout is done and the green beans are steamed, it's time to finish up:

    • In a small saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over low heat. You can add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste, but be mindful of not adding too much for diabetic-friendly purposes.

  6. Serve the Baked Trout with the Steamed Green Beans on the side, and drizzle the melted butter over the fish. If desired, garnish with chopped fresh parsley for an extra pop of color and flavor.
