Serves 4

  • 4 nice trout, scaled and gutted
  • 1 bunch fresh thyme
  • 1 unwaxed lemon
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 12 unskinned garlic cloves
  • ½ cup (12 cl) olive oil
  • Fleur de sel and pepper


  • Wash the lemon and cut into thin slices
  • Remove the thyme leaves and chop roughly
  • Mix together the thyme, sea salt and olive oil. If you prefer, you can crush the thyme into the olive oil with a pestle to extract all of the thyme flavors
  • Clean the trout well, both inside and out
  • Dry the inside of the trout with paper towels
  • Stuff the inside of the trout with half of the thyme oil, 2 lemon slices, 3 unskinned garlic cloves and 1 bay leaf
  • Place the trout into an ovenproof dish
  • Brush the outside of the trout with the rest of the thyme oil
  • Cook the trout for 10 minutes in an oven preheated to 475°F (240°C). The trout have finished cooking when the skin is nice and crispy and the flesh flakes easily when pricked with a knife.
  • Serve the trout nice and hot.


  • This trout can be accompanied by a nice salad or a spinach salad drizzled with walnut oil.
    You can also barbecue the trout sandwiched between two grill racks or wrapped in aluminum envelopes
