  • 4 small trout, about 125 g (4 oz) each, cleaned
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 150 ml (¼ pint) rose wine
  • Salt and pepper


1 Cut 8 rectangles of greaseproof paper or kitchen foil, double the width of each trout, and half as long again as the fish.

2 Place 4 of the rectangles on a baking sheet. Lay a trout along the centre of each one, pull up the edges of the paper or foil and fold at each corner so that the paper forms a container for each fish.

3 Sprinkle a little salt and pepper, garlic and herbs over each trout, then spoon 2 tablespoons of the rose wine over each one. Cover loosely with the remaining paper or foil and fold at the corners as before to form a lid over each fish.

4 Fold the top and bottom layers of paper or foil together in several places. Bake the trout in a preheated oven, 190°C (375°F), Gas Mark 5, for 35-40 minutes, until the fish is cooked.

5 Take the fish to the table in the parcels to serve.
