Delicate and mild, trout is a fish that doesn’t need to dress to impress. You’ll season it ever so lightly in a savoury-peppery blend before giving it a quick pan searing. Next comes a vibrant salsa verde to spoon onto the fish: finely chopped cucumber, cilantro, a splash of lemon juice and a drizzle of oil is all you need to make this energizing topping. For a contrasting accompaniment, add colourful and tender carrots to the picture.

Roast the carrots
Preheat the oven to 450°F. On a lined sheet pan, toss the carrots with a drizzle of oil; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, flipping halfway through, 18 to 22 minutes, until tender when pierced with a fork.

Cook the trout
In a large pan (non-stick if possible), heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Pat the trout fillets dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add the seasoned trout* to the pan, skin-sides down, and cook, 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until cooked as desired.

Make the salsa verde
While the trout cooks, juice the lemon. Small-dice the cucumber. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems. In a medium bowl, combine the cucumber, cilantro, up to ½ the lemon juice (to taste) and as much garlic as you’d like; drizzle with oil and season with S&P to taste.

Make the salad & serve
In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, as much remaining lemon juice as you’d like and a generous drizzle of olive oil; season with S&P to taste. Divide the roasted carrots and finished trout between your plates. Spoon the salsa verde over the trout. Serve the salad and remaining salsa verde on the side. Bon appétit!

*Health Canada recommends cooking fish to a minimum internal temperature of 70°C.
