Dinner With TCR – Trout du Jour! November 21, 2009

Got a surprise today, a gift from the project engineer, who had availed himself of a few free minutes before work to snag a fine rainbow trout.  He not only landed it, he gutted and chilled it as well.

I like a man who takes care of business.

Anyway, I’m not really this guy’s tight buddy, so the fact that he offered me his morning catch suggested that everybody else had already said “no.”

I said yes.  Hey, WTF, fresh trout??  I think I can live with it!!

And besides. I’d been eating in a much too pedestrian mode in recent days, and needed to class up my culinary act.  A little trout in the mix seemed unlikely to cheapen my neighborhood.

So I assembled a saute: trout, tomato, red onion and cilantro

…done up in olive oil and lime juice, with virtually no other spices, as I can’t find the pepper grinder here and haven’t the heart to take my own from home:

It came out really guuud!

Anyway, it’s been a while since I shared my dinner, which my Christian up-bringing taught me was right, so I’m atoning right here and now.

Bon appetite!

Now you’ve made me hungry for fish! It’s 5 o’clock in the morning, and I don’t think the Lobster House is open – or that I’m about to go out looking for fish, for that matter. All I have in the house would be cans of tuna or sardines. What am I to do?

and what did your Christian up-bringing teach you about enciting envy? Because that looks really good.
