Baked Trout Tarragon

This recipe has been put together by Hub-UK - if you have any questions about it feel free to email us.

Whilst the recipe calls for trout you can use other fish according to availability - small sea bass or grey mullet work well. Simple food is often the best - when you have tasted this dish you might agree!


2 rainbow trout
Bunch of fresh tarragon
Celery salt
1 egg
1 kg sea salt
1 tsp water


  • Mix sea salt with egg and water mixture to moisten it. Cover the base of an ovenproof dish, just big enough to take both fish (I remove heads and tails), to a depth of about 1/4 inch.
  • Stuff cavity of trout with fresh Tarragon and rub outside with celery salt.
  • Place trout on salt bed and cover with remaining salt so that it is completely sealed.
  • Bake at 200ºC for 20 to 25 minutes.

Serve with green salad or French fries
