  • 1/3 cup mirin (sweet cooking rice wine)
  • 2 tbsp fennel seeds

7 Remove trout from marinade, reserving marinade. Remove and discard skin. Cut trout to make 12 pieces.
8 Pour marinade into a saucepan; cook until reduced to 1/2 cup. Cool slightly before whisking in walnut oil to make a dressing.

10 Sprinkle with 1/4 cup walnuts. Garnish with 1 orange slice and a few fennel tops.
