Sustainable fish is an extremely important topic to me. I have written extensively on the subject for LC and Blogcritics.
U.S. Farmed Rainbow Trout is a "Best Choice" according to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch. I am not talking about the fish grandpa' catches in the lake, I am talking fish raised in pristine waters of Idaho, away from pollution. If you are thumbing your nose at rainbow trout right now, without even trying it, I'd say grow up and expand your palate.
For the Rainbow Trout Loaf:
For the Rainbow Trout Gravy:
4 cups Rainbow trout stock
1 tbs unsalted butter
1 tbs all purpose flour
In a small saucepan, bring the trout stock to a simmer. Reduce by half. In a saute pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour. Mix well to combine. Cook to a light blond color. Incorporate the roux into the stock. Cook for a few minutes to incorporate and thicken. Remove from heat.
For the Creamed Sunchokes:
2 cups sunchokes - sliced thin on a mandoline
2 garlic cloves - minced
1 shallot - minced
2 tbs unsalted butter
In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the sunchokes, garlic, shallot. Cook for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Pour enough milk to cover the sunchokes. Lower the heat and simmer until tender.
If you require a tutorial for blanching green beans, just get a take-away.
That's it for now...till we exchange a few words again...Peace!
