This morning I got up early to catch two little fresh rainbow trouts from the market. Copenhagen is great as it is close to the sea and you can get very high quality and fresh seafood.
Fish is so healthy for you. Food nutrients recommend to eat fish at least twice a week as a part of a well-balanced diet. Generally, fish provides your body with a lot of healthy omega 3 fatty acids and Vitamin B and D. These essential nutrients keep your heart and brain fit and healthy. Omega 3 fatty acids can not be produced by our bodies, so we need to get them through the food which we eat. They are found in every kind of fish, especially trout.
Time get to get fishy!
Pan frying is the easiest and I think one of the tastiest ways to prepare fish. This is cracking recipe: First, it takes you only a few minutes, the fish looks really impressive on the plate and last it is super healthy and delicious. I just love the crispy skin. The lemons gives the rainbow trout a very nice flavour. Frying the fish in the pan makes sure that the fish stays juicy while the skins get nicely crispy.
It's time to get roasted.
My recipe also turned out great on a BBQ. Simply put it on the charcoal grill instead in the pan and grill it for about 8 minutes on each side. The skin will become super black. Don't be afraid of it! You can simply peel it off. I love the BBQ version as it adds a nice smoky flavour to the rainbow trout :)
