Grilled Trout with Tomato Tomatillo Salsa

Lake trout has gathered many names across the country, such as grey trout and salmon trout. But no matter what it's called, it's ideal for the table. Tomatillo, a small green sour fruit with a paperlike husk, is a key ingredient in many Latin American green sauces. In Canada, buy them fresh during the late summer or canned all year round.

Salsa: In saucepan of boiling water, blanch tomatoes for about 30 seconds or just long enough to loosen skins. Immediately plunge into ice water. Peel, seed and chop enough to make about 1 cup (250 mL); let drain for 5 minutes. Chop tomatillos to make about 1/2 cup (125 mL).

In bowl, combine tomatoes, tomatillos, onion, jalape?epper, garlic, coriander, orange juice, oil, salt and pepper. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days. Drain off liquid before using.)

In small bowl, combine oil, coriander, cumin, salt and pepper; brush over fillets. Place fish, skin side down, on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until fish flakes easily when tested, about 8 minutes. Serve with salsa.

Additional information : Tip: No tomatillos? Substitute red or green tomatoes and use lime juice instead of
the orange.
