Trout with a lemon zest - and a warm bean salad


The zest and juice of a lemon brings out the subtle flavour of this delicate fish, it's complemented by a zingy bean salad ...
Why not give it a try!

Ingredients:
Serves Four
2 tbsp. olive oil
800 g boneless trout fillets
Zest and juice of 1 lemon, plus extra lemon wedges to serve (optional)
225 g runner beans, trimmed and sliced diagonally
200 g fine beans, trimmed
3 spring onions, trimmed and finely sliced
410 g tin butterbeans in water, drained and rinsed
2 tsp French Dijon mustard
1 tsp runny honey
4 sprigs fresh mint, leaves picked, washed and chopped, plus extra to garnish

Method:
1. Preheat the grill to high. Use 1 tablespoon of the olive oil to grease the grill tray. Place the trout fillets on the tray, skin-side down, and scatter over the lemon zest. Season with black pepper and grill for 8-10 minutes, until cooked.
2. Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil and add the runner beans and green beans. Cook for 5-6 minutes, drain and leave to cool slightly, then transfer to a bowl. Stir in the spring onions and drained butterbeans.
3. Whisk together the mustard, honey, mint, lemon juice and remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season with black pepper and stir into the beans. Serve with the trout and a wedge of lemon, and garnish with mint leaves.

Sit down and enjoy ...
