Escalopes of ocean trout with spring vegetables

Broad beans are great in this mix if they're around and you have a bit more time. Crusty bread is a mighty fine thing for mopping up the juices.

You'll need

800 gm piece of ocean trout, skinless, pin-boned 70 gm butter, coarsely chopped 200 gm baby beans, trimmed 200 gm snow peas, trimmed 150 gm podded peas 2 golden shallots, finely chopped 1 tsp thyme 50 ml lemon juice To serve: watercress sprigs and sourdough


  • 01
  • Slice ocean trout diagonally into 8 thick, even steaks. Heat 20gm butter in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat, add half the ocean trout and cook, turning once, until golden and almost cooked through (30 seconds to 1 minute each side). Set aside and keep warm; repeat with remaining trout.
  • 02
  • Blanch baby beans until just tender, adding snow peas and podded peas during the last minute of cooking (2-2½ minutes). Drain and set aside.
  • 03
  • Add shallots to frying pan and stir until just tender (2-3 minutes), then add thyme and stir to combine. Add lemon juice and remaining butter and whisk to combine, then season to taste. Spoon sauce over warm trout and vegetables, scatter with watercress and serve with sourdough.
