River Trout Agrodolce


  • Heat ¼ cup oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the shallots until browned and just tender, stirring now and again.
  • Then add the water, white balsamic, red wine, seasonings, sugar, raisins and bay leaves. Mix well and cook down until a glaze is formed, regularly stirring and adding more water if needed. Taste for balance of sweet and sour.
  • Then heat a layer of fresh oil in another pan and fry the lightly floured and seasoned fish until golden on both sides, skin side down first. Drain on kitchen paper towels.
  • Serve the fish with a good dollop of sauce on the side with your favourite potato or vegie dish.
  • nb.  The sauce can be served hot, warm or at room temperature and the fish can be grilled, if you prefer.
