Trout with brown shrimp butter

By February 16, 2017 , , ,

Trout is one of my favourite fish, 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 in the sauce. 

1 trout filleted and pin boned

To cook the trout

30g butter
10ml lemon juice
100g brown shrimp
20g butter for cooking the trout
Salt and pepper to season

Season the trout before cooking
Cook the trout skin side down in butter 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, this will take roughly 5 minutes 
You will start to get a nutty smell from the butter in the pan, this indicates it is ready
Immediately remove from the heat and add the lemon juice and shrimp to stop the butter cooking further
Pour over the trout
