Looking for a healthy dinner idea that’s ready in a flash? Made with a handful of ingredients, this low FODMAP trout with fresh dill and chives will be a family favourite in no time!
Full disclosure, I stole this recipe from my mother-in-law. I’m new to the world of fishies, so I’m still testing the waters when it comes to seafood recipes (see what I did there?). But my MIL has been kind enough to show me the ropes!
This trout with fresh dill and chives is one of her weeknight staples! And it’s quickly becoming one of mine as well!
The trick to this recipe is to bake your trout in a foil pouch. This helps seal in all of the moisture and flavour while your fish is cooking. Leaving you with a tender, flaky masterpiece!
I know fresh herbs can be expensive! Especially if you don’t need the whole package. So take another tip from my MIL and freeze your leftovers. When you’re ready to make your next trout, sprinkle on a handful of herbs right from the freezer! It can't get any easier than that!!

Looking for an esay weeknight dinner idea? This low FODMAP trout with dill and chives will be a weeknight favourite in no time!
- 2 filets (about 1 lb) of rainbow trout or salmon
- 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
- 1 tbsp of fresh dill (1/4 tsp dried)
- freshly ground pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup fresh chives, thinly sliced
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place two pieces of foil on your counter and drizzle a small portion of oil where you think each fish will be.
- Lay each fish in the center of the prepared foil and drizzle them with the remaining olive oil. Then sprinkle each fish with dill and fresh pepper and top with fresh chives.
- Take out two more pieces of foil and lay them on top of each fish. Gently fold the edges of the foil over on themselves to make an airtight packet. Place each packet on a baking sheet and bake your fish for 15-20 minutes. The fish is cooked when it flakes away and is a consistent colour throughout. Cut your fish into 4 servings and serve.
Recommended low FODMAP serving size – one filet per sitting.
The cooking time will vary based on the thickness of your fish. If your fish looks a little scrawny, make sure you check on it a little earlier.
