Trout with Rosemary Cherry Tomato Sauce

Look at me sticking to my eat more fish resolution two weeks in a row!
Trout with Rosemary & Cherry Tomato Sauce
This recipe was in the June '09 issue of Bon Appetit under 15 minute meals & it really did come together that quickly (well except for the rice I served it over.) I don't think I got the exact right kind of trout. I probably should have gotten the smaller, whole Canadian trout & put rosemary sprigs in the center of each fish. But we thought this steelhead looked so good we decided to adapted the recipe for it.

This was really, really good. The fish was incredibly flaky & tender. The whole dish has a very fresh taste. We really liked the way it tasted with the rosemary cherry sauce & next time we make this we'll actually double the amount of the sauce in the recipe.

Trout with Rosemary Cherry Tomato Sauce
(adapted from a recipe by Jill Silverman Hough in Bon Appetit June '09)

1/2 pint cherry tomato, about 12, halved
1 shallot, chopped
1/2 T balsamic vinegar
1 T fresh rosemary, chopped
2 1/2 T olive oil
kosher salt
1 lb steelhead trout, cut into two pieces

In a small bowl mix the tomatoes, shallots, vinegar, 1 teaspoon rosemary & 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season with salt & pepper. Set aside

Heat the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Season the flesh side of the fish with salt, pepper & remaining rosemary. Put the fish in the hot oil & cook for 4 minutes or so per side.

Serve over rice, we flavored our rice with chopped parsley & sorrel.

Serves 2

This one looks really good. I think I'll have to try this next time I buy trout.

It seems to be Trout Recipe Week, I've posted a couple myself and now I've seen yours and some others too! ;)

I love fish, and what a refreshing simple sauce to serve it with. I bet it would go well with any type of fish!
