This is as good as any 5 star restaurant! It's fabulous! We had fresh trout, the sauce turned it into a fantastic dish! Thank you so much, Inez! We love your recipes!!!!
We voted this the best fish we have ever eaten!
I ordered a dish in Paris with trout and almonds that I just loved. So I looked for a recipe to replicate it and came across this one. I wanted to use a whole trout, not fillets like other recipes. This was delicious served with a rice pilaf like in th picture I posted.
