Glazed Haricots Verts

  • 2 cups haricots verts, blanched
  • 1 tablespoon shallots
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt


  • 1 portion rainbow trout, butterflied
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons clarified butter
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup almonds, blanched and sliced raw
  • 1 1⁄2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • 1 half portion side Glazed Haricots Verts


Haricots Verts

Combine the haricots verts, shallots, chicken stock, and salt in a large saute pan. Cover, place over medium-high heat, and bring to a simmer. Cook for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.


  1. Heat oven to 400 F.
  2. Season the trout with salt and pepper. Heat a cast-
    iron skillet over medium-high heat and add in clarified butter. Sear for 2-3 minutes, then transfer pan into the oven and cook for another 3-4 minutes, until the trout is just barely cooked through. Remove the trout and place on a plate to keep warm.
  3. Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel and add in the butter. Over medium-high heat, melt the butter and add the almonds. Cook the almonds until fragrant and golden brown, being careful not to burn them. Immediately add the lemon juice, salt, and parsley. Mix well and spoon the sauce over the trout.
  4. Serve with glazed haricots verts and enjoy!
