Trout With Almonds in the Handy Grill
Posted by Alison Baker Wednesday, 4th February 2015
Trout cooked with almonds may be considered a classic recipe nowadays! I do remember first cooking this when I was at college which was rather a long time ago! But it is still delicious cooked this way, crunchy almonds and tender moist trout flavoured with fresh herbs and lemon. And don’t forget how good oily fish are for us
Using your Handygrill to grill the trout, what could be easier? The fan grilling function in your multifunction oven directs hot air all around the fish cooking it gently while it sits on the trivet. Cooking it this way means you don't need to turn the fish over. The element in the top of the oven browns the fish.
Your fishmonger will happily remove the heads from the trout if you prefer.
- 2 whole trout, cleaned
- Freshly ground pepper
- 1 lemon, half cut into slices, the other half cut into 2 wedges
- Herbs – a mixture of bay leaf, dill, parsley, rosemary, thyme or a combination of herbs you have
- Sunflower oil to brush over the trout
- 25g/1oz flaked almonds
Pre heat the multifunction oven on the fan grilling function at 200C with the Handygrill rack on the door in the 2nd position from the top.
Lay the trout onto a board and make some cuts diagonally across the fish, this helps to keep the fish from curling up while cooking and allows the heat to penetrate into the fish.
Season the inside of the trout with pepper, add the lemon slices and push in your herbs of choice. Place the trout on to the trivet over your Handy grill pan and brush with oil.
Put the Handygrill into the oven on the door rack, and close the door.
Depending upon the size of the trout, grill them for about 20 minutes, larger trout may need longer.
When the trout are cooked and browned, sprinkle over the flaked almonds, and continue to cook for a few more minutes, until the almonds are lightly browned, be careful as they burn very easily.
Serve with the lemon wedges.
