Recipe for Courgetti, also known as zucchini noodles, topped with Grilled Trout – a fantastic low carb meal
2 x 200g trout fillets (or use salmon)
200g courgette noodles (or use buckwheat noodles)
For the Dressing:
3 Tbsp sesame oil
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1-2 tsp fish sauce
3 Tbsp honey
1 clove garlic, minced
1 red chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
juice of 2 limes
Chopped fresh coriander (or pretty micro herbs), to serve
1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds, to serve
Pre-heat your oven to 200C. Season your trout fillets lightly with salt and pepper.
Mix together your dressing ingredients, pour about 1/3 over the fish fillets and bake them for 10-12 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare your courgette noodles. When you take the fish out of the oven, cook the noodles in a large pot of salted boiling water for 2 minutes, drain and divide into serving bowls.
Top the noodles with the fish fillets, sprinkle over the chopped coriander and sesame seeds, drizzle over extra sauce and serve immediately.
