Serves: 4


To make the butter, heat oil in a frying pan and cook onion and curry powder over low heat until soft and fragrant. Set aside to cool. Process all butter ingredients in a food processor until just combined.

Roll butter into a 3- to 4-centimetre diameter log, wrap in plastic and refrigerate until firm.

Cut butter into eight discs and sit on eight small individual squares of baking paper. Allow to soften while cooking the fish.

Heat olive oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat, season trout and cook, skin-side down, for 3 to 4 minutes, until skin is crispy. Turn and cook for 2 minutes or until cooked to your liking. Turn off heat and allow to rest somewhere warm.

Place trout on four large white plates, place two discs of the curry butter over each fillet, sprinkle with sea salt and finish with fresh pepper.

Serve immediately.
