Over the bank holiday we had a delicious meal with my family with trout caught by my little brother.  You may remember this post back in May when he caught me a trout for my birthday which we barbecued on one of the only warm summer evenings we’ve had this year!  Well, my mom had three that he’d caught when we went to visit for the weekend.

My mom and I served the trout with a herb butter, garlic roasted smashed potatoes, grilled tomatoes and green beans.  The locally caught trout were cooked simply in the oven covered in foil.  I disappeared into my mom’s garden to gather up a selection of herbs to make the herb butter – chives, thyme, sorrel, oregano, mint – you could use any mixture you wanted.  I also picked a couple of calendula flowers and snipped the petals into the mixture, this flecked the herb butter with vibrant orange streaks. 

The butter is easy to make – simple whip up some softened butter, add in the chopped up herbs and optional edible flowers, add a good amount of black pepper and salt.  Add a dollop of the herb butter to your cooked trout and watch as it melts and oozes down over the delicate pink flesh.

My mom’s garlic roasted smashed potatoes were delicious – the softness of crushed potatoes, the crispy bits that had been roasted, and all of it infused with a yummy mild garlic flavour.  Simply parboil your peeled potatoes.  Drain and roughly mash up – just to break them up a bit.  Pop the smashed potatoes into an ovenproof dish, sprinkle over some minced garlic, a couple of sprigs of rosemary, and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Bung in the oven and cook for about 30 minutes until the potatoes are cooked and slightly crispy on top.
