Provencal Pan Trout

You know what’s really great? One pan dinners. Though, I find that really good ones are hard to come by. So, when you find one that works, it’s your duty to tell all your friends, yell it from the roof tops, no one likes it when someone keeps a good thing all to themselves. Feel free to swap out trout for salmon, they both work well. If you don’t have herbs de provence, don’t worry about it, just use some dried thyme and oregano, and if you have it some savory, marjoram and rosemary. To be honest, I don’t really care for traditional herbs de provence due to the lavender; it’s much too floral.
