Stuffed Trout and Purple Sprouting Broccoli - With Lemon & Mint Smoked Garlic

Ingredients

For the Stuffed Trout Ingredients

50g hazelnuts
50g almonds
50g pine nuts
8 canned anchovy fillets in oil, drained
2 Lemon and Mint Smoked Garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tbsp capers in brine, drained
2 free-range eggs, beaten
50g grissini (Italian bread sticks), crushed
handful fresh mint, finely chopped
75g parmesan cheese, finely grated
1 lemon, zest only
salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 whole trout, each about 450g, scaled, gutted, gills removed
110g butter

For the purple sprouting broccoli:

salt and freshly ground black pepper
300g purple sprouting broccoli
1 tbsp olive oil
12 cloves Tarragon and Fennel Smoked Garlic  (or to taste), finely sliced
1 lemon, juice only


Directions:

Place the hazelnuts, almonds, pine nuts, anchovies, Lemon and Mint Smoked Garlic and capers into a food processor and blend.
Transfer the nut mixture to a bowl. Add the eggs, crushed grissini, mint, parmesan, lemon zest, salt and freshly ground black pepper and stir well to create a paste. If it appears a little wet, add some more crushed grissini.

Place the trout on a chopping board and stuff the cavities with the paste.
Tie each trout in three places with raffia or kitchen string to wrap the fish closed around the stuffing.

Heat the butter in a large frying pan big enough to fit all four trout; alternatively divide the butter between two frying pans.

When the butter has melted, add the fish and fry for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until just cooked through.

Bring a pan of water to the boil over a high heat. Add a pinch of salt and the purple sprouting broccoli and cook for 2-3 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Heat a frying pan until hot and add the olive oil and Tarragon and Fennel Smoked Garlic, stir fry for 30 seconds before adding the drained broccoli. Stir-fry for one minute, and then add the lemon juice and season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

To serve, place each trout onto a serving plate and place equal amounts of the broccoli alongside.
