SERVES: 2

Ingredients for the fish

  • Two 150g Sea Trout fillets
  • 1/4 tsp Fines Herbes

Ingredients for the pickling liquor

  • 30ml white wine (or water)

Ingredients for the salad

  • 1/2 cucumber, in strips
  • 4 asparagus stalks, peeled and in strips
  • 1/2 lemon

    5. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over a medium high heat and add the sea trout fillets skin side down. Press down on the fillets with a spatula to ensure good contact with the pan
    6. After 3 1/2 minutes turn the fillets over and cook the flesh side for 30 seconds
    7. Drain the cucumber, add the asparagus and squeeze in the juice of 1/2 a lemon. Arrange on your plate
    8. Lay the sea trout on top of the salad, add a sprinkling of Fines Herbes and garnish with charred cucumber chunks and a wedge of lemon

      Chicken fajitas are on the menu here every week because they're so quick and easy to make. We like ours just as they come, but feel free to add grated cheese, soured cream, guacomole according to taste.

      This dip is so easy to make and can be flavoured with many different rubs. For a more traditional houmous replace the rub with 1 tsp ground cumin.

      Stollen is made in Germany at Christmas time. These stollen bites make great treats over the festive period, but also go down well over the rest of the year as well!
