I love, love, love when things I can’t normally afford to buy are on offer in the supermarket! I don’t know why people don’t make more of reduced sections!!!
At the beginning of the academic year, as I did my first big supermarket shop I stumbled across a pack of two trout fillets for just £1. That’s right £1, saving me around £3.50!!! So with their best before date coming to an end I wacked them straight in the freezer!
Now, as the reading is piling up, and tutorials are kicking in, I’ve been in desperate need for brain food and I got my trout out to defrost...now all I needed were two delicious trout recipes to cook up a storm!
Here are my two ways with trout:
Trout and Chorizo Chowder
One cooooold autumn night last week I was in need of some warming comfort food so I whipped up this trout chowder/stew/whatever you want to call it in now time! Minimal effort, minimal fuss, maximum flavour!
Trout and Fennel Parcels with Cous-cous
Tonight I finally got round to eating my last piece of trout – after I’d defrosted the first this one looked so lonely in the freezer on its own, but I knew it had something special waiting for it in the days ahead! For a fresher taste I decided to cook trout and fennel parcels with cous cous!
