“Most trout amandine recipes call for use of fillets and frying with a breading. I think these techniques mask the real flavor of fresh water trout. I prefer to broil the fish and deboning a cooked trout is quite easy and gives the chief a chance to show off. To debone a cooked trout use 2 tablespoons, first using a spoon remove the head & tail of the fish. Then make sure all the skin is cut. Using the spoons with the rounded side to the meat, carefully open the fish in butterfly style. Take the bones from the tail side and with a flourish remove all the bones at once.”
