Baked Sea Trout with Green Market Potatoes and Vegetables with Green Garlic Lovage Sauce

Trout is a mild, oily, delicate fish. Trout is also a quick-cooking fish, so it doesn’t require too much hassle in the kitchen. Since trout is mild, it’s a great fish to use flavorful sauces on. Below, I’ve shared an easy-to-bake trout recipe with a delicious garlic-based sauce paired with potatoes, snap peas, and asparagus. Enjoy!
Serves: 4 to 6 people

Ingredients For the Fish:

2 fresh sea trout, filleted with the skin on
Olive oil
Creole seasoning, recipe follows

For the potatoes and vegetables:

6 tablespoons butter
2 pounds first of the season red potatoes, boiled until fork tender
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pound sugar snap peas, cleaned and blanched
2 large bundles asparagus, blanched
For the Lovage and Green Garlic Sauce:
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup lovage, chopped
1/4 cup green garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Essence (Emeril’s Creole Seasoning):

2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried leaf oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme

Directions For the Lovage and Green Garlic Sauce:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Drizzle the trout with olive oil and season with the Creole seasoning. Put it on a parchment lined baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through.

For the potatoes and vegetables:

Heat a large saute pan over medium heat. Melt the 3 tablespoons butter, add the new potatoes, and saute for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
In another saute pan, saute the snap peas in 2 tablespoons butter for 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
In another saute pan, saute the asparagus in the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Season with salt and pepper. Turn all of the vegetables out onto a large platter and keep warm.

For the sauce.

Heat the olive oil in a large saute pan and season with salt and pepper. When the oil is hot, add the lovage, green garlic, and crushed red pepper and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
To serve: Place the fish on top of the vegetables and potatoes. Pour the sauce over the fish. Sprinkle with a little more Creole Seasoning.
