Keto friendly dinner ***new recipe***

Author: Dr. Michelle Durkin on 14 May 2019

If you haven't heard the word keto in reference to weight loss in the last couple months it's possible you have been living under a rock . If you have heard about keto, you're probably wondering is this just another fad diet, or does it actually have some merit? Stay tuned for next week's article to find out!

In the meantime this month's recipe can give you a little preview.

Not only is this meal delicious, you only dirty one pan making it. It's simple, keto-friendly and tastes great. Even if you are not following a keto diet or don't need to lose weight, I'm sure you will like it. This recipe will serve four people.

One Pan Mediterranean Trout


  • 2 cups basil leaves
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 rainbow trout fillet (approx 5 oz each)
  • 1 1/2 cup artichoke hearts
  • 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives
  • 4 large tomatoes, quartered


  1. Preheat oven to 450 C and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Make pesto combining basil, lemon juice, garlic, sea salt, hemp seeds, olive oil together in a small food processor. Pulse until smooth.
  3. Lay rainbow trout on baking sheet and arrange the artichokes, olives, and tomatoes on the baking dish around the fillets. Top each piece of trout with a generous spoonful of pesto.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until the fish is cooked through. Divide onto plates & enjoy!
