Cooking time

20 minutes




440 /serving

Steer some sunshine right onto your plate with this radiant 20-minute recipe. To make the warm salsa, you’ll sauté flavour-popping cherry tomatoes and chives, and then juice it up with lime for added punch. Sweet pepper and poblano take a turn in the oven; once roasted to softness they’re thinly sliced. The fillets of trout are gently pan-seared with a sprinkling of lively spices, and served upon a silky swoosh of avocado sour cream.

Roast the sweet pepper & poblano
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Halve and core the sweet pepper and poblano (quarter if large). On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Roast, flipping halfway, 10 to 12 min., until tender. Transfer to a cutting board and thinly slice. Keep warm.
