The almond cream is SUPER simple to make and adds a pleasing creamy sweetness to the fish. In this recipe I have used filleted rainbow trout, but whole trout would work well too. Or actually, it would work well with all kinds of fish – it would be great with cod or salmon, too!
It really doesn't take very long to make – and the sauce is made from just two ingredients! Easy enough for a weeknight meal.
How to Make Rainbow Trout with Almond Cream
Melt some butter in a pan and add a little olive oil. Saute the trout on both sides until cooked through. Note – if you are using whole fish you can decrease the cooking time by cutting 2-3 slashes in the skin on each side.
While the fish is cooking, add some almond flour and heavy cream to a small saucepan. Stir well and cook until it begins to thicken.
Pour the almond cream over the top and enjoy! Serve the fish with salad, vegetable side dish of choice, or (as shown here) shirataki Miracle Rice!Rainbow Trout with Almond Cream - #lowcarb, simple, delicious #rainbowtrout Click To Tweet
