Sesame Crusted With Ginger Scallion Salad

By Chef Lucia Watson

This is a simple and delicious recipe that we serve at the restaurant around the beginning of trout season. The salad also is wonderful paired with chicken.


To serve two . . .


Two 8- to 10-oz. fresh trout, deboned

4 tbsp. sesame seeds

1/2 c. lemon juice

Salt and pepper


2 tbsp. butter

2 tbsp. dark sesame oil

» Rinse each trout under cold water and pat dry. Dip each into the lemon juice and then dredge the skinless side in the sesame seeds to coat well. In a heavy-bottomed sauté pan, heat the butter and oil until the foam subsides. Place the trout skin-side-up in the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Lower the heat to medium and cook about 5 to 8 minutes; flip, and cook another 5 to 8 minutes, or until the flesh is pinkish white and flakey.
