Trout, most of which is farmed, needs to be cooked simply. Classic accompaniments such as brown butter sauce are a perfect match. I love it with almonds and green beans, as it reminds me of a little café I go to in Paris. It’s not a fancy restaurant, just a simple corner café that serves great food like this dish.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
300g new potatoes
1 small bunch fresh chives
100g flaked almonds
300g green beans
8 x 150g trout fillets
150g butter
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Halve the new potatoes, if large. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil, add the potatoes and cook for 12–15 minutes, until tender. Meanwhile, chop the chives. Drain the potatoes and crush them with the chives, then season with salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, toast the almonds in a dry pan over a medium heat until golden. Remove and set aside.
  3. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil, add the green beans and cook for 3–4 minutes until just tender, then drain and keep warm.
  4. Preheat the grill to high. Season the trout fillets with salt and pepper and place on a baking tray. Top each one with a small knob of butter and grill for 2–3 minutes. Remove and keep warm.
  5. Heat a sauté pan over a high heat and add the remaining butter. Cook until nut brown, then remove from the heat.
  6. To serve, place a trout fillet on each plate with the potatoes and green beans alongside, scatter with the almonds and pour over the brown butter.
