If you'd prefer your spice to be in your sides rather than on your fish, try this recipe! The spicy kale adds a nice kick to an otherwise non-spicy fish dish! Recipe from Food Network. "Ingredients 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 2 stalks celery, finely chopped 5 scallions, sliced (white and green parts separated) 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 2 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning 2 1/2 teaspoons light brown sugar 2 15 -ounce cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed 1 15 -ounce can no-salt-added diced tomatoes 3 cups frozen kale, turnip or mustard greens (about 8 ounces) Louisiana-style green hot sauce 4 4 -to-5-ounce trout fillets, pin bones removed, patted dry Lemon wedges, for serving Directions Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the celery and scallion whites and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and 1 teaspoon each Cajun seasoning and brown sugar and cook, stirring, 30 seconds. Add the beans, tomatoes and 3/4 cup water; bring to a simmer and cook until the liquid is slightly reduced, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in the kale and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the scallion greens and a few dashes of hot sauce. Meanwhile, mix the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons each Cajun seasoning and brown sugar and sprinkle on the flesh side of each fish fillet. Heat 1/2 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add 2 fillets, seasoned-side down, and cook, undisturbed, until blackened on the bottom, 3 to 4 minutes. Carefully turn the fillets and cook until opaque, about 1 more minute. Transfer to plates. Repeat with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon olive oil and 2 fish fillets. Serve with the kale and lemon wedges.
