Pan-Seared Trout with Green Garlic and Crunchy Chanterelles
Top Chef Season 15 winner Joe Flamm wowed judges with this simple but virtuosic dish of pan-seared trout with garlic and chanterelle mushrooms. In his quick-cooking dish, crunchy breadcrumbs cling to seared chanterelles and garlic atop delicate trout in a pool of buttery white wine sauce. To make the sauce, let each cube of butter fully incorporate before adding the next. (Do not let it come to a boil or it will break.) Green garlic, the mellow, early-season young garlic, can be found at farmers markets and Whole Foods; garlic cloves are a fine substitute.
