    Preparation & Cooking time: 20 mins

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients :
    • 4 Pieces of Sashimi Grade Ocean trout – Shop Now
    • 100 gm Dukkah (Gourmet Spice Blend Australian Bush Dukkah or Pukara Estate Cashew and Roast Onion Dukkah are recommended)
    • 100 gm Panko Crumbs
    • Olive oil
    • Lemon pepper
    • Salt
    Method :
    1. Take Fresh Sushimi-Grade Ocean trout and cut to size of portion to be served.
    2. Remove skin and rub the surface with olive oil.
    3. Season both sides of the fillet with Lemon pepper and salt to taste (Start light if the Dukkah used is salty).
    4. Place the fillets into the air fryer basket outside the machine so you don’t have to transfer them after applying the crust.
    5. Take a bowl and add Dukkah and Panko crumbs in equal amounts to make the crust.
    6. Using a spoon carefully coat the upper surface of the trout with a layer of the crust mix – (Preferred to use the side from which the skin was removed)
    7. Once you have the desired layer of crust, using spray olive oil, gently coat the crust without blowing it off the fish.
    8. Place the trout in the fryer at 185 degrees C for 10-15min until the crust is brown. (Preferred to have the trout internal temperature at 54 before removing from the fryer but the fish will certainly tolerate higher temperatures.
    9. Serve for breakfast on hash brown and avocado smash or as dinner with fennel and pear salad.
