DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the trout under cold running water (or in the beautiful mountain lake/stream you caught them in).
  • Pat dry.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper (I take a zip lock baggie in my pack with salt/pepper/garlic powder mixed together).
  • Melt the butter in a large heavy skillet on medium-high heat.
  • Coat the trout in corn meal and shake off the excess.
  • When the butter is melted, place the coated trout, flesh side down, in the skillet.
  • Fry 4-5 minutes, then turn and fry 4-5 minutes or until the flesh is golden brown and flaky. (Trout may be seasoned with garlic or onion powder before frying if desired, I also take a lemon with me to squeeze over the top).
