Makes a wonderful light dinner, too. This recipe serves four. I serve it with tabouleh salad and French bread. 4 whole brook trout 2 lemons, sliced 1/2 c. mint leaves dash of black pepper 1 crushed garlic clove, pealed Dash of white wine or vinegar Combine all the above except the trout in a deep pan or fish poacher with 2 quarts water. Bring to a simmer and gently slide in the trout. The trout should be immersed in the water. Cook at a gentle simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat and gently remove the trout. Chill. In a blender combine: 1/4 c. vinegar or lemon juice 1 clove garlic, crushed and peeled 1 tbsp. smooth dijon mustard zest of 1 lemon dash of salt and pepper 1 generous tbsp. mint (6 to 10 large fresh leaves) Blend 30 seconds to 1 minute. Then while the blender is running, add 3/4 cup oil in a slow steady stream. If the dressing is too thick, add a few drops of water. Taste, adjust seasoning, and chill. Tabouleh 1 c. bulgur wheat 11⁄2 c. boiling water Combine and let sit to absorb and cool. Toss with dressing, and add fresh chopped mint, red onions, cucumber, tomatoes, parsley, salt, and pepper. n Cold Poached Trout Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+ Share0 Tweet Email Load Comments ( ) Don’t forget to sign up!
