  1. Method
  2. Notes

  1. To make pesto, process herbs, parmesan, nuts and garlic until finely chopped. Slowly add oil, processing until combined.
  2. Combine crème fraîche and chives in a small bowl. Season.
  3. To make mash, place potatoes in a large saucepan of cold salted water. Bring to a gentle boil. Boil until tender. Drain and allow steam to evaporate. Push potatoes through a ricer. Add milk and butter. Season. Beat with a wooden spoon until combined and smooth.
  4. Heat a lightly oiled non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Season fish all over. Cook skin-side down for about 3-4 minutes or until skin is crisp. Turn and cook for about a further 1-2 minutes or until trout is just cooked through. Exact cooking time of fish will depend on thickness of fillets.
  5. Serve trout with mash, beans, pesto and crème fraiche.

- As we were cooking for a large amount of people, we sealed our fish in a frying pan and then finished it off in the oven. Our skin went soggy, so we didn’t serve it, but this recipe includes crispy skin.
- A ricer is a great way to ensure smooth mashed potato with no lumps. It looks like a giant garlic crusher and you can find them in the cookware aisle of your local department store or cook shop.
- Crème fraîche is a French style sour cream. If unavailable you can substitute with regular sour cream.
- Pesto is traditionally made with basil, but we have used parsley and chives as a point of difference.
