admin's picture
  Cucumber 1 Medium, peeled, seeded and sliced into thin half-moons
  Salt To Taste
  Dried guajillo chilies 2
  Dried chipotle chili 1
  Boiling water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Tomatillos 6 Ounce, husked and rinsed (5 Medium Size)
  Vegetable oil 2 Tablespoon, plus more for brushing
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), finely chopped (Medium Size)
  Onion 1 Small, diced
  Finely chopped cilantro 1 Tablespoon
  Finely chopped mint leaves 2 Tablespoon
  Freshly ground pepper To Taste
  Sour cream 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Jalapeno 1 , very finely chopped
  Chopped flat leaf parsley 1 Tablespoon
  Trout fillets 48 Ounce (4 Fillets, 8 Ounce Each, With Skin)

1. In a colander, toss the cucumber slices with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and let stand until wilted, about 25 minutes. Pat dry.
2. Meanwhile, soak the guajillo and chipotle chilies in the boiling water until softened, 20 minutes. Discard the stems and seeds and coarsely chop the chilies.
3. Light a grill. Grill the tomatillos over high heat until they are charred all over, about 5 minutes. Discard the charred skins and coarsely chop the tomatillos.
4. In a small skillet, heat the 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Add two-thirds of the chopped garlic and the onion and cook them over moderate heat until softened, about 7 minutes. Transfer to a blender, and then add the chopped chilies and tomatillos and the cilantro and mint. Puree the sauce and season with salt and pepper.
5. In a medium bowl, toss the wilted cucumbers with the sour cream, jalapeno, parsley and the remaining chopped garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
6. Brush the trout fillets with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper. Oil the grate and grill the fish over high heat, skin side down, until the skin is crisp, about 3 minutes. Turn the fish fillets over and grill until they are just cooked through, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer the grilled trout to plates and serve with the chili tomatillo sauce and cucumber salad.
