Rainbow trout with basil pea puree

This is a great light summer meal and tastes wonderful served at room temperature as well. Serve with lemon or lime wedges so diners can adjust the level of acidity they require.


1 large filet of rainbow trout
1/2 Zest of a lime
Sprinkle of cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
For the pea puree:
3 cups frozen peas
Handful of fresh basil leaves
1 clove of garlic
1/2 Juice of a lime
Salt and pepper to taste


1. Heat some olive oil in a pan.
2. With kitchen towels dab the filet to make sure it is dry. Sprinkle the filet on both sides with the salt, pepper and cayenne.
3. Place the filet skin side down in the pan. Sprinkle the zest on the flesh. Cook until the skin is golden and crisp, about three minutes. Then flip over and continue to cook for another three to five minutes, depending on the level on doneness you prefer.
4. While the fish is cooking, blend all the ingredients for the puree together. I tasted it and then found I would like some more basil so I added more in. Add the lime juice last.
5. Serve the trout with the puree and some more lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
