My mother-in-law showed me this recipe - so easy my kids could make it! I have kept this very general as it really depends on the size of the trout you have, and your personal preference when it comes to the lemon. We catch speckle trout (all about 10 - 12 inches long); So tasty and sweet! Best with FRESH fish!! This could be served at camp too! Just bring the whole lemons and butter (ooh, even a few cloves of previously roasted garlic!)
- Clean trout properly; cut to the size you prefer to eat (our family leaves the skin on).
- Put enough butter on bottom of pan (cast iron preferred) and let bubble.
- Lay trout, skin side down, in pan; flip when necessary.
- Squeeze lemon juice (or pour canned juice) over trout fillets.
It really is super easy to prepare and was just delicious.
