"The Creole Cafe steamed with onion vapour, garlic mists, tomato fogs
and green-pepper sprays. I cooked and sweated among the cloying

odours and loved being there..."

Grilled Trout with Spiced Pecans

Mr. B's Bistro - New Orleans
Bon Appetit June 1987

Bon Appetit - One Year Subscription

1 cup pecans halves, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter, melted
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
1 teaspoon minced fresh oregano
1/2 teaspoon Creole Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
pinch of ground coriander
4 cups (about) hickory or pecan
chips, soaked in water
30 minutes and drained

Tomato Butter Sauce:
2/3 cup dry white wine
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup minced shallots
1 1/2 pounds Creole or beefsteak tomatoes,
peeled, seeded, diced and well drained
2 tablespoons whipping cream
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) well-chilled unsalted
butter, cut into tablespoons
4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground white pepper

Six 1- to 1 1/4-pound trout,
boned and butterflied
Creole Seasoning
Melted butter
Grilled tomato slices (optional)
Sliced steamed pattypan squash (optional)
Fresh basil sprigs (optional)

For pecans:  Prepare barbecue grill (low heat). Pierce holes in disposable aluminum baking pan. Mix pecan halves, melted butter, thyme, oregano, Creole Seasoning, allspice and coriander in medium bowl. Spread out on perforated pan. Add 1 cup hickory chips to barbecue grill. Place pan on
grill rack. Cover and smoke until pecans are toasted, stirring occasionally
and adding more wood chips as necessary to maintain smoke, about 30 minutes. Remove pecans and cover to keep warm. Increase heat to high.

For sauce
:  Boil wine, vinegar and shallots in heavy small saucepan until
most of liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes. Add half of diced tomatoes and
2 tablespoons cream and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low. Whisk in 1 1/2
cups butter 1 piece at a time, removing pan from heat briefly if beads of
melted butter appear. Mix in remaining diced tomatoes and lemon juice.
Season sauce with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and keep warm.
 Sprinkle trout with Creole Seasoning. Brush both sides with melted butter. Add 1 cup hickory chips to fire. Place trout on grill rack, skin side up.
Cover and cook until just opaque, about 2 minutes per side. Ladle sauce
onto plates. Top with trout. Sprinkle with pecans. Garnish with tomato
slices, squash and basil, if desired.
