Trout With Herbed Brandy Butter

Sometimes the best recipes are also the simplest. I love it when this happens! We planned a Mediterranean feast this past weekend and wanted some fish to go with it. Ginny found the freshest steelhead trout of all and we set to work.

My sister, Kara, is moving to Alaska soon and I am expecting shipments of vacuum sealed salmon to arrive at my doorstep on a regular basis. I am not beyond going out there to catch it myself if necessary. Though I will miss her company, which I have enjoyed for the last few months, I welcome the fresh fish and vacation opportunities.

The trick to this trout is letting it soak in about 1/2 cup of brandy for at least one hour before cooking. I had heard of bourbon marinades for salmon and trout so I reasoned brandy should work well also.

It only takes about twelve minutes to broil the fish. This frees up a lot of time for making sides and (to be honest) drinking wine. This last bit is crucial to achieving good results.

I usually cook steelhead trout and salmon to medium – medium well. This would be when there is just a little bit of dark pink left in the middle of the fillet (check it with a fork) and the white fat has started to cook and seep out of the fish. Some recipes recommend medium or less, but unless it is super fresh, you may get more of a fishy taste at this level.

PREP TIME: 60 MINUTES         COOK TIME: 12 MINUTES         SERVINGS: 6-8

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 large fillet steelhead trout (2-3 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1/2 stick melted butter
  • 2 tbsp. fresh chopped rosemary
  • 1 tbsp. thyme
  • 1 tbsp. oregano
  • 1tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp. fresh ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place fish in a casserole dish and pour brandy over entire fillet. Let marinade in refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  2. Heat oven to broil. Pour melted butter over fillet. Sprinkle herbs, salt and pepper over the fish and broil for 10-12 minutes or until butter browns and the edges of the fish become crispy. Serve with tabbouleh or your favorite side and enjoy!

Note: the quality of the brandy makes a difference in the flavor of this recipe so buy something good!

  55. I’m the manager of JustCBD Store label (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently aiming to develop my wholesale side of business. I am hoping anybody at targetdomain can help me 🙂 I considered that the best way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape stores and cbd retailers. I was really hoping if anybody could recommend a trustworthy web site where I can get Vape Shop Business Mailing List I am currently checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the most suitable choice and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
