Noodles with Trout and Langoustines

I love to use the best local ingredients that I can, and as I’m spending a bit of time away from my home in Devon, up in Bonny Scotland, I saw these alien like Scottish Langoustines and snapped them up.

I also have managed to catch myself a lovely Rainbow Trout yesterday evening, a beautiful 3 lb slab of silver and rainbow colours and as fresh as it gets.

I made up a Thai style broth, with a litre of light fish stock, which I brought up to a simmer with a stick of lemongrass, a crushed clove of garlic, a little piece of galangal or ginger, a few slices of red chilli, and half a lime squeezed and thrown into the saucepan.

I pan fried steaks cut from the trout until brown both sides in a little wok oil, and halfway through popped the langoustines in the pan to cook. Meanwhile I cooked some green noodles with a few branches of choy sum greens until soft and drained them. I popped these in a lovely earthenware soup bowl that I’ve treated myself to. Topped with a couple of langoustines, a trout steak, and added a few drops of fish sauce, some sesame oil, soy sauce, coriander and a good squeeze of Sriracha chilli sauce.

I enjoyed this immensely with an ice cold bottle of Kirin lager.
