Recipe by Marcus Samuelsson

Serves: 6

Yield:

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 8 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

Hot, hot, hot is the rule for a jerk spice rub, and this glaze, with its habanero or Scotch bonnet pepper, does the job. The coolness of the Green Goddess dressing balances the heat.

Jerk Spice Glaze (makes ¾ cup)

– 3 whole spring onions (scallions), trimmed and finely chopped
– 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
– 1 habanero or Scotch bonnet pepper, ribs and seeds removed, finely chopped
– 3 tablespoons molasses

– 2 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
– 1½ tablespoons coconut oil, melted
– 1½ tablespoons rum (optional)
– ½ tablespoon fresh lemon juice
– ½ tablespoon dried thyme
– ½ teaspoon ground allspice
– ¼ teaspoons ground cinnamon
– 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
– Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Green Goddess Dressing (makes 1¾ cups)

– ½ cup coarsely chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
– cup coarsely chopped fresh dill
– 1/4 cup sliced fresh chives
– 2 anchovies, patted dry
– 2 tablespoons Champagne vinegar
– 1 ½ cups extra-virgin olive oil
– sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Trout

– 6 x 180 g trout fillets with skin, pin bones removed
– Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
– Melted coconut oil for brushing the pan

To make the jerk glaze

1. Combine the spring onions (scallions), garlic, chilli pepper, molasses, coconut sugar, tamari , coconut oil, rum (if using), lemon juice, thyme, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ½ a teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper in the bowl of a food processor and process until blended.

2. Pour the mixture into a small bowl and set aside. Clean the food processor bowl.

To make the Green Goddess Dressing

1. Put the parsley, dill, chives, anchovies, and vinegar in the bowl of the food processor and process until fine.
