Rainbow Trout with Micro Green Sauce


    Omega-3-rich rainbow trout is gussied up with this fresh tasting green sauce. The best micro greens to use include brown mustard, arugula, cress, radish, or fenugreek. Wild salmon or Arctic char are good fish choices as well. Use extra sauce as a salad dressing.


    1 1/2 lbs (750 g) rainbow trout filets
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    1 cup (250 mL) packed micro greens
    1 shallot, minced
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1 tsp (5 mL) lemon zest
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) red wine vinegar
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    1/4 cup (60 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
    Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).

    Slice trout into 4 equal-sized pieces. Rinse, pat dry with paper towel, and season with salt and pepper. Place trout pieces on silicone- or parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes, or until flesh is opaque and easily flakes.

    Meanwhile, add micro greens, shallot, garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, red wine vinegar, and salt and pepper to blender or food processor and pulse until combined. With machine running, pour in olive oil through feed tube and blend until just slightly chunky.

    Serve trout with green sauce.

    This is a spin off the classic, without the Grand Marnier. The depth of orange is derived from a generous piece of orange peel simmered in the tea.
