with Fennel & Baby Greens Salad

Cooking time

10 minutes




410 /serving

Lively flavours of lemon, pan-popped cherry tomatoes and toasted almonds play out over the fish in this divine dish. You’ll simply sear the trout in our chili-flecked Mediterranean Heat seasoning blend, and lay it down next to a sharp salad of baby greens and finely sliced fennel. It’s the Paleo diet on a plate, reworking the low-carb, pro-protein foodways of early humans to suit today’s nutrition-conscious people.

Cook the trout
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Pat the trout dry with paper towel; season with ⅔ of the spices and S&P. Cook, starting skin-sides down, 1 to 2 min. per side, or until cooked as desired. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Reserve the pan.
