Chef's Tip

When zesting citrus, try to remove only the outermost colored portion of the rind, or zest, and as little of the white pith beneath as possible. The zest holds all the fragrant essential oils, while the pith tastes bitter.

Wash produce before use

1

Make the cucumber-olive salad

  • Peel the cucumber, if desired. Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Coarsely chop the Kalamata and Castelvetrano olives.
  • Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate. Set aside the juice for the chermoula. [Zest and juice 1 lemon; save the remaining lemon.]
In a medium bowl, stir together the cucumber, olives, lemon zest, and 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand while you prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Prep the trout

  • Pat the trout dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • On a plate or shallow bowl, season the almond meal with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
  • Crack the egg into another shallow bowl; season with salt and pepper. With a fork or whisk, lightly beat until just blended.
  • On another plate or shallow bowl, spread the sliced almonds in an even layer.
Dredge the trout in the almond meal, turning to coat; shake off any excess. Dip the trout into the egg; let the excess drip off, then gently press both sides into the sliced almonds to help them adhere.

3

Cook the trout

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the trout and cook, turning once, until golden brown and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Watch carefully so the coating doesn’t burn; reduce the heat if necessary. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the trout cooks, finish the chermoula.

4

Finish the chermoula

In a small bowl, stir together the chermoula, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the trout and cucumber-olive salad to individual plates. Drizzle the trout with half the chermoula and serve the rest on the side.
