Gin & Juice Trout
Every Night Of The Week recently teamed up with Archie Rose for their Party Season Workshop (or as they call it ‘Xmas party before the real deal’)! Impress your guests this Christmas with this delicious duo recipe Gin & Juice Cured Trout paired with a twist on the classic French 75 Cocktail.
Gin & Juice cured Ocean Trout
Serves 16 as an entree
- 1.2kg side ocean trout, pin boned, skin on
- 3 beetroots - grated, or chopped in a food processor
- 250g caster sugar
- 250g rock salt
- 2 cups finely chopped herbs - chervil, dill, chives.
Place all the curing ingredients into a bowl and combine.
Layout a sheet of glad wrap and place 1/3 of the mix down as a base on the wrap.
Place the trout, skin side down onto the mixture.
Cover the flesh with the remaining mixture and wrap the entire fish tightly with glad wrap, multiple times. Try to remove as much air as possible.
Place in a baking tray, with a smaller tray and some tin cans weighing it down, overnight in the fridge.
The following morning rinse the trout and pat dry then press the herbs over the trout flesh, re-wrap and store in fridge until needed.
