My most memorable meal to date was many years ago when our family was on a European vacation. We stopped at an inn on the Plansee in Austria (Tyrol). The rainbow trout was freshly caught from the lake (Plansee) the same day. It was simply fried whole and served with fried potatoes and a garden salad. We sat outside with an amazing view of the lake and the mountains. The air smelled so fresh and clear. This recipe is close, but I rarely get rainbow trout as fresh as we had that day. I don't serve it whole as the family doesn't like their food to stare back at them!
