Garlic Poached Trout Recipe

Garlic Poached Trout  


2 pounds fish fillets
1 cup low-fat milk
4 cloves of garlic, crushed very well
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
Pinch nutmeg
2 teaspoons butter
1 Tablespoon flour

Microwave or Oven bake

For a quick, delicious microwave meal......
In a 1-qt, microwave-safe baking dish, combine the milk, crushed garlic, salt, paprika, sugar and nutmeg. Cover and cook on high (100 percent) power until the milk comes to a boil. Add the fillets to the milk, with thick parts toward the outside and thin parts toward the center. If the fillets aren't covered by the liquid, spoon some over the fish. Cover and cook on high (100 percent) power for 3 minutes. Give the dish a one-quarter turn and cook for 3-4 minutes longer depending upon strength of microwave. Allow to stand 1 minute. Use a flat spatula to remove fish to plates. Cover to keep warm. If you are making the sauce (below), keep the liquid.

Sauce: In a small dish, mash the butter and the flour together to form a lump. Stir this into the cooking liquid from the fish, until the butter melts. Cook on high (100 percent) power for 1 minute. Stir and cook until the liquid is boiling and thickened. Pour sauce over fish. This is a good dish to serve with pasta.

Oven Cooking: Prepare milk and other seasonings (or your favorite combo) same as above. Using ovenproof baking dish, be sure that milk mixture completely covers top of fillets. Cook at 375' until milk is evaporated and fish flakes. Careful to not overcook. Try variations for toppings in the milk mixture: green onions, Italian breadcrumbs, diced peppers, bacon bits.
