PAN FRIED TROUT

This recipe is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free, and suitable for most people with digestive issues.

I call it trout, you may call it char or rainbow trout, and this recipe comes from one of my cookbooks (only available in Icelandic). It only takes about 15 minutes to make, but it’s tasty and satisfying. This recipe is for two, but you can make it for as many as you like, estimating one fillet of trout per person.

INGREDIENTS:

2 medium sized skinless fillets of trout, whole or cut in two pieces
1 lime (or lemon)
himalaya salt and lime pepper, according to your taste
1 box of organic spinach
1 medium sized red onion, cut in two lengthwise and then into thin slices
1-2 (depending on size) pressed garlic cloves
1-1 1/2 tbsp raisins
oil of your choice to fry in – I choose olive oil

THIS IS HOW YOU PREPARE THE TROUT:

You will need two frying pans if you are cooking for more than one, otherwise you can use the same one.

  1. Heat oil on frying pan to medium, season the trout fillets on both sides, and put the on the pan when the oil is hot enough. Make sure to start with the skin side up.
  2. Fry for about 2-3 minutes and then turn the pieces.
  3. Sprinkle the lime juice over the fish.

SPINACH WITH RAISINS AND RED ONION

  1. Heat oil to medium heat in a frying pan, and start by frying the garlic and red onion, for about 2-3 minutes. Stir regularly.
  2. Put more oil on the pan if needed, and add the spinach and the raisins. Fry for max 1-2 minutes, stirring regularly.

Place the fish fillets (or pieces) and the spinach mix on a plate and serve.
