Trout fillets with Almonds & Capers Fast2eat

Trout is such a wonderful fish and has a fabulous flavour, combine with a sauce made with tangy lemon juice, piquant capers, and butter. Sauteed almonds make a zesty topping. The perfect combination for the tender, flaky fish.

The trout here is cooked to medium-rare, so it retains a lovely oiliness.

Serve the fish with lemon wedges, green salad or baby lettuce leaves and mashed potatoes.

The almond sauce and herbs from this recipe also go well with roast lamb or beef.
