A Simple Island Supper

 Days of driving and one entire audiobook later (The Hunger Games if you’re wondering…my literary tastes on the road are way sophisticated) we have finally arrived on the island. Did I forget to mention it’s paradise?  

The First Supper

Chili Lime Trout with Arugala, Goat's Cheese & Blackberry Salad

 Baked Chili Lime Trout

This meal can be swank or simple depending on your tastes & time constraints. We chose the latter for our first night, since we didn’t have much time and were craving fresh seafood immediately upon our arrival at the shore.


  • 1 large trout fillet
  • salt and pepper
  • chili powder, cumin & red pepper flakes
  • good quality salsa
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 lime
  • olive oil/butter/earth balance


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Rinse and dry 1 large filet of trout. Lay trout out on a piece of tin foil (about double the size of the fish) skin side down. Cover in salt & pepper.
  3. Cover fish in chili powder, cumin & red pepper flakes. Then cover with 1/4 cup salsa, massaging evenly over the fish.
  4. Top with 1 small yellow onion & 1 lime, sliced into rings.
  5. Drizzle with a small amount of olive oil or a few pats of butter/earth balance.
  6. Wrap the trout completely in the foil, leaving no gaps for steam to escape. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until fish is fragrant & the centre flakes easily.

Serve with a side of brown rice, freshly steamed asparagus & a side salad.
