Pan-Fried Trout With Orange And Samphire


Pan-Fried Trout With Orange And Samphire

My pan-fried trout with orange and samphire is the perfect dish to whip up for a date night or inviting your friends round for a good catch up over delicious food! Samphire is a great source of dietary fibre and does wonders for your body’s digestive system. This funny looking vegetable is sometimes know as sea asparagus and has a distinctive crisp and salty taste.

Rub the trout in some sea salt and pepper. Heat the butter/oil in a pan and fry the fish skin side down first for 2 minutes then flip over and cook for another 2 minutes until cooked through (cooking time may vary on trout size).

Boil the samphire for 3 minutes until cooked through mix with the lemon juice and olive oil.

Plate the trout with the orange sliced, tomato slices and samphire. Sprinkle over the almonds and serve.

    Hi Madeleine,

    Living in the USA it may be difficult to get samphire. Any suggestions for substitutions?

      Hi babe, Samphire has a really unique flavour but it terms of texture I’d say asparagus is probably the closest xx
