He went fishing & I stayed home

At school the other day we learned how to pan fry trout, pretty cool yes. Of course that gave my cute hubby an excuse to go ice fishing and bring home dinner.
Normally we just grill them in foil but this time I decided to pan fry them, basically you want to get rid of the back bone the head and the tail so it will lie flat (it can be pretty tricky) or if you buy them in the store just buy the filet its a lot easier.

I found this recipe and it turned out so good I didn't even have time to take pictures before it was gone.
The only thing I did differently is not use as much oil.
With trout to see if it's done you test by touch not temperature, when you test the touch you want the meat to spring back and be slightly firm. If its mushy it needs longer.

Pan fried trout.



In a wide flat dish, combine the bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, oregano, red pepper flakes, zest of 1 lemon and salt, to taste.
In a small bowl, mix together the mustard and the juice of 1 lemon. Brush both sides of the trout with mustard mixture. Coat the fish on both sides with the seasoned bread crumbs and press firmly to adhere the crumbs to the fish.
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
Coat a large skillet with about 1/4 to 1/2-inch of olive oil and bring to a medium-high heat. Add the fish to the pan, skin side down, and cook the fish 2/3's of the way, about 6 to 7 minutes. Carefully turn the fish over and cook the other side until the fish is brown and crispy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the fish from the pan and drain on paper towels. You will probably need to work in batches to do 4 fish. After the first batch is done and dried on paper towels reserve it on a rack in a warm oven.
When all the fish has been fried, remove the oil and any brown bits from the pan. Add the butter and remaining lemon juice and swirl to combine as the butter melts. Season with salt, to taste, and reduce by about half. Transfer the fish to a serving platter, drizzle with the butter lemon sauce and serve.
What a fishtale!
