After so many bredies, pasta dinners and comforting casseroles, you might be in the mood for something light and fragrant – like Woolworths’ farmed rainbow trout, which is raised in the pristine waters of the Lesotho Highlands.
The quality of the water, combined with nutritionally balanced feed and sustainable farming methods, produce a melt-in-the-mouth, tender fish. Enjoy it roasted with seasonal veg, or try something new, like a flavourful Asian noodle bowl.
Pan-fry the rainbowtrout skin side down in 1 T sesame oil over a high heat. Once crispy, turn over. Turn off the heat and deglaze the pan with 4 T soya sauce and 1 T honey. Place cooked noodles in 2 bowls. Flake over the crispy trout and add julienne carrots, edamame beans, sliced radish, sliced spring onions, red chilli, nori, basil, mint and a squeeze of lime. Serve with pickled ginger.
