Colorado Camper's Trout

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by keen5

I love fresh fish fried and this recipe is really yummy! I found this recipe in the Colorado Cache Cookbook back in the 80's. The book said, "This is the best way to eat trout: when it is stream fresh, it's hard to beat!" I agree! This recipe is great for cod too. Prep and cook times are approximate, depending on how long you want to fry your fish.

This is a wonderful recipe! I cooked this on an outside BBQ burner in a cast iron skillet. Very tasty. Good way to fix trout even for folks who don't like trout! Surprise them!
