Ocean Trout with Jalapeño Cream

Method

Heat a large pan over medium heat and the trout, skin-side down. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the flesh starts to turn opaque and then flip to cook on the other side for about 3 minutes. Set aside.

Heat olive oil in a medium sized saucepan. Add the onion, garlic, jalapenos and green capsicum and sweat off for 3 minutes.

Add the white wine and season to taste. Reduce on a simmering heat for another 5 minutes. Now add the cream and cook for 3 minutes.

Cool slightly and then place in a food processor with spinach (for colour) and blend until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve.

Serve with pan-fried ocean trout.
