Preheat your grill to high. Put the peppers and mangetout on a baking tray and put a large frying pan on the hob on a high heat. Drizzle a little oil over the vegetables on the tray and then sprinkle with some salt before popping the tray under the grill.

Add a swirl of oil to your frying pan, then season the trout fillets on both sides with a good pinch of salt and pepper. Place the fillets in the pan, skin side down, and then give your fishy hands a little wash. Cook the trout for 1.5 minutes on the skin side, then carefully turn over and cook on the other side for about 30 seconds. You'll probably find that, at around the time you turn the fish, your pan is starting to smoke a lot. Turn the heat right down and the residual heat in the pan will be enough to finish cooking the fish.

Whilst the fish is cooking, squeeze the juice of half a lemon into a small bowl or jar. Add 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, along with a small pinch of salt and pepper and then whisk or shake together.

Once the fish is cooked, turn the heat off everything and remove the fish to a board. Take the baking tray out from under the grill and set aside.

Put the rocket leaves in a small mixing bowl and pour the dressing over them. Toss together lightly with your fingers.

To serve, place half of each pepper in the middle of your plate, skin side down. Place some mangetout on top, then cut a trout fillet in half and place on top of the mangetout. Finally, arrange some lemonyrocket around the outside of the plate and you're done!

I hope that you enjoy it.
