Rainbow Trout With Pineapples 年年有余庆虎年

Labels: { , , }

Happy Valentine's Day!

Rainbow trout occur as both freshwater resident and sea-run races. Sea-going rainbows, known as steelhead trout. Regenbogenforelle
in German and 虹鳟鱼in Chinese.
  • 1 tail / 250-300 g Rainbow trout
  • 80 g Pinapple chunks, drained
  • 1 Bell pepper
  • 1 stalk Spring onion segments
  • 1 tsp Minced garlic
  • 1 tsp Sliced ginger root
  • Some oil
  • 1 tbsp Egg white
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Jiafan rice wine
  • 1/2 tbsp Cornstarch
    2 tbsp Chilli sauce
  • 1 tbsp Light soya sauce
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2/3 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Cornstarch solution

  1. Clean the fish and drain. Mix in the marinade and let stand for about 15 minutes. Rinse peppers in cold water and then remove stem and seeds. Cut into small chunks. Combine all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Heat some oil in a heavy pan until hot. Gently lower in fish and pan-fry until golden on each side. Drain on a kitchen towel and set aside.
  3. Leave 1 tablespoon of frying oil in the pan and add in minced garlic and ginger root slices. Stir until fragrant and add in red pepper and prepared sauce. Stir well. Return the fish to pan, and add in pineapple chunks and spring onions. Cook for about 1-2 minutes and dish off.

This is getting bookmarked since we fish for trout each year, and I am always looking for ways to cook it!

Some people are put off by the whole thing, but it does make a difference in flavor...

Hi Angie,
Happy New Year! I hope you had a great new year celebration. Rainbow trout looks really good. Though the eye of the trout seems like it want to say something. It is a beautiful dish!
