Trout with Macadamias, Serrano and Green Beans Review

3.5 stars (4 star fish, 3 star mixture) (on a 5 star scale)
p. 247-249


The best part of the fried fish. Fish takes longer than 3 minutes to turn golden brown. (Need to wait until oil is hotter? Second batch went faster.

Chicken broth liquid boiled off, so there was no "sauce" to spoon over each fillet, only the bean mixture.

Needs more garlic. I used a garlic press. Perhaps I should've minced them myself and spread them around better. Or maybe I should've used more garlic.

Components don't go that well together. Perhaps serve bean mixture separately?

Macademia nuts don't add much. Perhaps add tomato slices instead?

Lime flavor concentrated in places. Stir better, and spread lime juice while pouring!
