Trout with Black Pudding and Beurre Blanc

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Take two fillets and place, skin side down, on an oiled oven-proof dish or tray. Blend the butter and basil together and dot on top of the trout flesh; spread gently.

Step 2

Crumble the black pudding into the breadcrumbs (use a food processor if you wish) and scatter over the buttered fillets. Place the other fillets on top, flesh side up and bake for 15 minutes.

Step 3

While the fish is cooking, make your beurre blanc. Combine the shallots and white wine vinegar in a pot and bring to the boil over a medium heat. Simmer for three minutes until reduced by a third. Next, add the cream and slowly bring to the boil. Take off the heat and add a third of the butter while whisking constantly. Continue to add the butter, a small cube at a time, until the sauce thickens (Tip: always stand over the sauce as it can separate).

Serve immediately with the sauce and fresh lemon.

Step 1

Soak the spelt berries overnight in water. Drain and rinse and simmer for one hour or until cooked (soft but with a pleasantly chewy bite). Drain and allow to cool before placing in a large salad bowl.

Step 2

In a large hot pan over a medium heat, gently soften the cubed fennel in several tablespoons of olive oil. Once soft and lightly browned, remove the fennel from the oil and drain on kitchen paper. Add the fish fillets, flesh-side-down and cook for a minute before turning to cook skin-side-down for 4-5 minutes or until the skin is crispy and the flesh almost cooked through. Once the fish is cooked, allow to cool slightly skin-side-down on some kitchen paper.

Step 3

Meanwhile, prepare the other elements of the salad. Finely slice shallots and place in a small bowl with the vinegar to soften. Rinse the samphire and steam for 3-4 minutes or until lightly cooked. Cool in cold water and set aside. To segment the grapefruit, run a sharp knife around the inside of each half and to loosen each segment before scooping out with a spoon and into the large salad bowl with the spelt.

Step 4

Remove the shallot from the vinegar and toss into the salad bowl with the fennel cubes. Mix the remaining vinegar with two parts olive oil into a dressing, add the finely chopped dill, season with sea salt and crushed pink peppercorns and sharpen with lemon juice to taste. Dress the salad lightly with some of the dressing, reserving at least half of it.

Step 5

Top the salad with the cooked samphire, watercress and parsley leaves. Flake the trout flesh into the salad. You can chop the crisped skin into the salad also if you like. Serve with the remaining dressing on the side.
