    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.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
