This was my first time working on a trout recipe, & probably the first time tasting trout since I was a kid, so this was a real experience for me! I did cut the recipe in half & used 4 fillets, then followed the directions right on down (Well, I did toast the almonds!) & had a WONDERFUL dinner treat! Thanks for the great recipe!

I was lucky enough to have a buddy who brought me fresh trout and I cooked them up using this recipe. He is a true fisherman and he raved about them. The crisp texure of the almonds added a nice touch.
