1/2 cup Asian marinade and dressing (recommended: Wishbone)

 1/2 cup Asian marinade and dressing (recommended: Wishbone) 

1 tablespoon lime juice

 1 tablespoon pineapple juice

 1 teaspoon soy sauce


  1. Drizzle the marinade on the trout fillets to lightly coat each side. In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. Lightly dust the fillets in the flour mixture until both sides are evenly coated. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Dip the fillets in the egg mixture, the dredge the fillets in the bread crumbs.
  2. In a large, non-stick skillet, melt butter and oil over medium-high heat. Cook the fillets for approximately 2 minutes on each side until they are golden brown.
  3. In a large, non-stick grill pan, sear 4 of the pineapple slices over medium heat until grill marks form on each side. Reserve the juice from the can of pineapple for the dipping sauce.

Wilted Asian Slaw:

  1. Combine the first 6 ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl. Heat a large saute pan over medium heat and place the slaw mixture into the pan. Toss the slaw until the cabbage begins to slightly wilt. Remove the slaw from the heat and season, to taste, with lime juice, soy sauce, and salt and pepper.

Oriental Rice Timbales:

  1. Prepare the rice according to package directions, using chicken stock in lieu of water. Add the remaining ingredients except for the vegetable oil to the rice and combine well. Coat the inside of a dry 1-cup measuring cup with vegetable oil. Pack the rice mixture tightly into the cup and turn it out onto a plate. Re-oil the cup as necessary for additional mounds.

Cilantro Dipping Sauce in Lime Cups:

  1. Combine the cilantro and oil in a blender until a paste forms. Add the remaining ingredients to the cilantro paste and blend well. Pour the sauce into the 4 hollowed lime cups.
