Ingredients

    2 Rainbow Trout filets, approximately 1/4 pound each
    2 tsp dijon mustard
    2 tsp fresh thyme, chopped fine
    + 2 sprigs thyme
    2 tsp fresh oregano, chopped fine
    salt/pepper to taste (approx. 1/4 tsp each)
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1/2 cup vermouth
    2 Tbsp white wine vinegar (NOT distilled vinegar)

Tips

Use the best mustard you can find, a fine grind will work better than stone ground.

Most of the vermouth and oil will not be consumed (it cooks away or is tossed, very little is absorbed by the fish). If you don't cook with alcohol you can substitute chicken or vegetable stock.


Directions

Heat a saute pan large enough to hold both filets over medium-high heat.

Dry fish with a paper towel and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spoon dijon and spread evenly over each filet, sprinkle with herbs.

Add olive oil to saute pan, once heated add fish, skin side down, and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes until the bottom edges start to turn white.

Add thyme, vermouth, and vinegar - allow to boil vigorously for a minute or two until reduced by half. Lower heat to simmer and cover pan. Cook 3-5 minutes until the fish is cooked through. Remove fish to serving platter or plate and discard remaining cooking liquid.

Serving Size: 2 1/4 lb filets
