Trout with lemon, garlic, and herb sauce

When cooked correctly, trout is one of the tastiest fish out there. And luckily, the best way to cook it is to simply fry it in a skillet which is so quick and easy that anyone can do it! Right now, we have some amazing offers on trout as part of our Weekly Specials, so head in-store to make the most of this wonderful fish.

Recipe

Ingredients: 2 large fillets of trout, 2 tbsp. olive oil, 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning, ¼ tsp. salt, 4 cloves garlic, 3 tbsp. lemon juice, 2 tbsp. white wine, 2 tbsp. softened butter, 2 tbsp. chopped parsley.

Method:

  1. Season each of the fish fillets well with the Italian herb seasoning and salt.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp. of oil in the skillet on medium heat and place the fish skin-side up. Cook for about 4 minutes until lightly browned, and then flip them over so they are skin-side down. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and put the lid on the skillet, letting the fish sit for about 10 minutes.
  4. Once the fish is cooked through, use a spatula to move the fillet to serving plates and peel the skin off the fillet. If there is any skin stuck to the bottom of the pan, remove this with a spatula.
  5. Add the diced garlic, lemon juice, and white wine to the pan and cook on medium heat for about 1 minute until the garlic softens. Remove this from the heat and then add the chopped parsley and butter, stirring until the butter melts and forms a creamy sauce.
  6. Serve by drizzling the sauce over the fish fillets.
