Lake Trout with Cherry Tomato, Leek and Fennel Salsa

Lake trout is a mild yet flavorful fish that goes well with a savory sauce and these Mediterranean vegetables.

1. For the salsa, lightly coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray, add the oil and set over medium heat. Add the fennel, turn the heat to low and sauté for 15 minutes or until softened. Add the leeks and sauté 5 more minutes. Add the cherry tomatoes and sauté for 3 minutes or until just softened. Add the olives, sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, dried basil, oregano and pepper and heat for 1 minute. Set aside.

2. Dust the fish with flour. Lightly coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray, add the oil and sauté fish on medium-high heat for about 8 minutes, turning halfway through or until the fish just starts to flake.

3. Spoon the salsa over the fish and garnish with the fresh basil.
