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.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 trout fillets
Salsa:
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 cans tomatillos or 2 fresh tomatillos
  • 1/2 small red onion diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper minced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper

Method

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.
