Wednesday: Trouts and tarts
Rainbow trout baked with fennel, carrot and sweet peppers.
We improvised this bake to take advantage of the sweet, fatty flavor of upstate rainbow trout, which bears some resemblance to salmon. (On the basis of that resemblance, we also added a generous amount of dill.) We sauteed the vegetables with some onion before layering them over the fish in a casserole, and then baked it at 350F for about fifteen minutes. We probably could have gotten away with a minute or two less - but this all depends on the size of the fish.
We also had a special dessert tonight: a red currant tart, cooked in the brand new ramekins we acquired thanks to Giselle's end-of-law-school Westlaw Points redemption extravaganza.
