The aroma of fresh, steaming trout is intoxicating. Gently pulled off the bone with a fork, and eaten only with some crusty bread dipped in the fish's own olive-oil and herb-infused broth, it could be the best trout you've ever served.

Ingredients

¾ cup chopped parsley
¼ cup olive oil
2 tbsp. minced garlic
2 tbsp. grated orange peel
¾ tsp. salt
¾ tsp. ground black pepper
12 pieces (12- by 15-in.) parchment paper
12 boneless rainbow trout fillets (4 oz. each)

Steps

  1. In small bowl, combine parsley, oil, garlic, orange peel, salt and pepper; set aside.
  2. Fold each piece of parchment in half; open and place one trout fillet, skin-side down, close to the fold.
  3. Sprinkle each fillet with reserved parsley mixture. Bring top half of parchment over trout; fold edges together to form a tight seal.
  4. Per order, place parchment packages on baking sheet. Bake at 375˚F for 10 min.

Not only was this training a great team-building experience, but it supported a local new business and gave our staff a memorable experience.

Students at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor will be served student-grown produce from the campus farm at dining halls this fall, M Live reports.

The dining team received its first batch of produce from UM’s on-campus farm in June, after students received the proper USDA certification to grow, harvest and deliver food to campus dining halls. In order to figure out what produce is needed, students communicate with the dining department weekly, and Michigan Dining purchases items accordingly.
