Ingredients

Fennel Shrimp Stuffing:
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup fennel, diced, plus fronds 
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 cup fresh coarse bread crumbs 
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill 
  • 1 lemon, juiced 
  • 1 cup Newfoundland ice shrimp, small scallops or prawns
Trout:
  • 1 whole trout or arctic char, cleaned
  • Sea salt  
  • All-purpose flour, for dredging
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 ounces lobster meat
  • 1 teaspoon capers 
  • 3 tablespoons white wine 
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 
  • 2 tablespoons croutons 

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

For the stuffing: Heat the butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the fennel and onions and cook until soft. Add the bread crumbs, dill and lemon juice and toss to combine. Add the shrimp and cook until pink, 2 to 3 minutes.

Stuff the fish with the stuffing. Sprinkle the fish with the sea salt and dredge it in the flour, dusting off any excess.

Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Sear the fish on each side until golden brown and the skin is crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer the fish to a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast until a pairing-knife stuck into the center of the fish comes out warm to the touch, about 10 minutes.

Add the lobster, capers, wine, lemon, butter and croutons to the same pan used to sear the fish and cook over medium heat until the sauce has thickened slightly, about 1 minute.

Serve the fish with the lobster sauce.
