Trout with brown shrimp butter

By February 16, 2017 , , ,

Trout is one of my favourite fish. Growing up it was a rare treat, so when cooking it I like to keep the dish as simple as possible to preserve the flavour. With this recipe I like to add some brown shrimp which adds a bit of sweetness and you get a wonderful contrast with the sharpness of the lemon. The trick with this recipe is not to overcook the trout and not to take the butter too far and burn it.

1 trout filleted and pin boned
30g butter
Juice of a quarter lemon
5ml oil
100g brown shrimp

To cook the trout
Cook with a little oil or butter skin side down on a high heat for 3-4 mins
Turn the heat off and flip the fillets onto the flesh side and allow to sit in the residual heat for 1 minute
Remove from the heat to a warm plate

To make the brown shrimp butter
Place the butter in a pan on a high heat and cook until the butter starts to brown and you start to get a nutty smell from the pan
Immediately remove from the heat and add the lemon juice and shrimp to stop the butter cooking further
Pour over the trout
