Hope January finds you well and you've had a good New Year.
I've had quite a few request recently for a trout recipe.
Trout has a more delicate flavor than salmon in my opinion and benefits from simpler recipes.
Salmon is often referred to as 'the king of fish' but I think trout is more reliable.
Maybe because it isn't farmed so intensely - salmon can be a little fatty and metallic in flavor - trout is always so succulent.
Canned Tuna Fish Lasagne/Lasagna
2 tbspns oil
1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
1 can (185g) tuna (drained)
1 can (400g) tinned plum tomatoes
1 Italian stock cube/1 tspn dried basil and oregano
1 pint (700ml) milk
1 tbspn cornflour or thickening agent you usually use
1 tspn english mustard powder
8 oz (225g) hard cheese, grated
freshly milled pepper to taste
Sheets of lasagne/lasagna
Set your oven to Gas Mark 4, 350F or 180C whilst you assemble the lasagne.
Heat the oil in a pan, add the onion and garlic and cook until softened.
Add the tomatoes, tuna and stock cube or herbs and simmer until thickened.
Heat the milk in a pan, reserving a little to mix the cornflour and mustard to a smooth paste.
When the milk comes to the boil, take it off the heat and stir in your cornflour or thickener.
Return to the heat and stir for a minute. Add the grated cheese and adjust the seasoning.
Assemble the lasagne, layers of tuna sauce and sheets of lasagne, finishing off with lasagne topped with cheese sauce.
Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes.
Serve with crusty bread and salad.
