Cousin Matt caught a whopping rainbow trout, and several smaller fellows, while we were away on holiday in Devon. It was cooked that night stuffed with a delicious mix of herbs and mushrooms and tasty things, and baked in foil in the oven. It was such a monster, that although we had a good go at it, and as we were also eating a joint of ham and some left-overs, we didn’t make many inroads into it. Sooo…. I was lucky enough to take some of the monster cooked trout home, and also a couple of smaller uncooked ones.
As the only one in the family who likes eating fish I was able to have some in a mixed salad and bake a whole one with butter and lemon. The last fillets I cooked very simply in the left over buttery, lemony, trouty juices from the baked fish, well seasoned and with a little cream, and served them with Japanese soba noodles… simply yummy! Thank you Matt!
