As you can tell from the severe lack of posting around here, life is keeping me extremely busy. I’m so far behind on posting so many different things, and I’m not even sure what exactly it is that’s changed! For one thing, the girls just don’t afford me time in the day to work, since they’ve unsynchronised their naps. Then, when they’re finally in bed, I’m so tired I can barely keep my eyes open. It’s a nightmare, and I know it will change again, but for now, well… I’ll see you when I see you!
That said – we’ve had such lovely weather the last few days that we took lunch outside today, and it was so great I wanted to share it with you.
(We have this great picnic gas barbeque which means we can cook pretty much immediately. I’m a huge lover of bbq but we rarely have them because it just takes forever to get the fire ready, but with Grillscapes bbq equipment, it’s so much easier! This recipe can be done on either the bbq or in the oven.)
For the fish:
1 whole trout, cleaned
For the potatoes:
Thinly slices potatoes
White wine vinegar
Serve with salad of your choice. Ours was rocket and spinach leaves with mixed seeds and tomato, with a truffle oil and balsamic vinegar dressing
For the fish:
- Placed the clean trout in foil big enough to cover the fish and create a parcel
- Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice from one half, and slice the other half
- Add the salt, lemon juice and lemon slices on the fish
- Fold the foil to create a parcel.
- Place on a low heat bbq for 15 minutes or so, depending on the size of your Trout.
- Heat up a little bit of oil (we used olive) and spread the potatoes evenly over the frying pan.
- Shallow fry the thin slices, adding the seasoning as it turns crispy.
- Just before taking it off, splash some white wine vinegar, just to flavour, not enough to boil.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper
