Golden Trout a la Omi

An easy, delicious, healthy and speedy summer recipe. How we gonna call it?! Well…. Omi. Why?! Well because this is my name.

Originating in the high altitudes of the northern Rocky Mountains of the United States the Golden Trout has been called the “fish from heaven” by the Americans.The flavor is best described as sweet to nutty and once you have it you will look forward to it again!

When you are creating a recipe always remember that  flavors should complement each other. For the nutty side of the fish I use chestnut mushrooms and pesto, for the sweet part I use baby spinach.

Slice the mushrooms  and the garlic garlic for the base and stir fry them to make the base.

Pan fry the fish on both sides until golden brown.

Assemble into a delicios heaven
