Rainbow trout with Nicoise salad

Method

  • Heat a thin layer of oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan and cook the seasoned fish on both sides.
  • When the fish is almost ready, add the butter to the pan with a good squeeze of lemon juice, 1 tbsp chopped parsley, the garlic and a splash of fresh oil. Baste the fish with the cooking juices and briefly cook.
  • At the same time, blanch the beans in a pot of lightly salted, boiling water for a couple of minutes. Drain well.
  • To make the dressing, mix together a few tbsp fresh oil with a squeeze of lemon juice, a little salt and pepper, and the vinegar.
  • To serve, arrange the beans along one side of 2 large rectangular plates. Then scatter the tomatoes, potatoes, olives, anchovies and a few fresh herbs over the top. Place the fish alongside and sprinkle the dressing over the salad.
