You don't have to be from Kentucky to enjoy this main dish recipe. In fact, it would be great with Minnesota trout fillets.
ONE BAG BLUEGRASS BAKE!
Ingredients for 1 serving:
4 ounces trout fillets or any local flaky fish, such as salmon
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/2 cup zucchini, peeled and julienned
1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
2 sprigs thyme
1/2 cup navy or white beans, rinsed and drained
Plain Greek yogurt as topping, optional

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, gently toss all ingredients except navy beans, yogurt and rice. On a large piece of parchment paper or aluminum foil, add the fish and beans. Fold the parchment or foil over and crimp and fold so it’s sealed. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
