Trout with Potatoes and Arugula and HollandaisePosted by in Food
Facing my large amount of CSA bounty, I am working hard to find ways to use it all. I came up with a great trout dish that was tasty, except my hollandaise broke. I have the worst luck with it on my gas stove. It just gets too hot. I even tried it in a double boiler with no success. However, I can easily make it on my mom’s electric stove. Oh well. The dish was great and quite easy even if the sauce broke.
2 trout, cleaned
2 cups arugula
1 medium-large potato, thinly sliced
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400. Place the trout on a baking sheet, butterflied open, and season with salt and pepper. Drop the potato slices in boiling water until almost completely cooked. Remove and drop in the arugula for just a few seconds, drain. Place the potato slices over the trout then top with the arugula. Bake for about 10 minutes, until fish is cooked through. Serve with Hollandaise.

I will try this. Trout is one of my favorites. Had my first brook trout in France, when I was 17. Memorable experience. Funny the way we have such fond memories of some food served on vacation.
I really like your new, one-site blog. It’s inviting and efficient and I know I’ll be coming back often.
I remember having rainbow trout at a French restaurant with my parents when I was little and how the waiter said bon appetit when he served it to me!
