02 Apr Lemon & Garlic Trout Parcels
In the depths of the COVID lockdown, when foodies missed feeding friends and had nobody to share recipes with, South Sensation set up #eatsouth. It’s a gaggle of food fanatics who are passionate about local produce and supporting our amazing local producers.
Our latest Collection is ChalkStream Trout farmed in crystal clear water drawn from the world-famous Test and Itchen Rivers in Hampshire. These fish are fit and lean with a unique, clean taste – check out our blog.
asparagus ½ bunch, trimmed
skinless trout 1 fillet about 140g
softened butter 2 tsp
garlic ½ clove, crushed
lemon ½, zested and juiced
flat-leaf parsley chopped
to make 1 tbsp
Lay a piece of baking parchment over a piece of foil on the work surface, and add the asparagus stems, in one layer, to the middle.
Place the trout fillet on top and season.
Mash the butter with the garlic, lemon zest, parsley and seasoning. Spoon onto the fish, add a slice of lemon and a squeeze of juice, and wrap the parcel up tightly.
Put in a steamer basket, and steam for 15-20 minutes, until the fish is cooked through.
Serve with more lemon squeezed over, if you like.
