    Default Trout fresh from the lake


    I am the benefactor(es) of my neighbor's fishing skills. He came by
    this evening with 5 lbs of trout, just hours from the lake.
    I saw him out cleaning it but never thought I'd be fortunate enough to
    have some within minutes.

    My first thought was, oh boy, cornmeal, deep fry. As I was working
    with the fish, preparing some for the freezer and setting aside what I
    wanted to cook tonight, I started to appreciate the freshness and
    texture of the fish, dang, right out of the lake how lucky am I.
    I changed my mind and decided a gentle "fry" in butter was what this
    fish needed.

    Cornstarch sprinkled with some dried lemongrass, ready for dusting the
    fish.

    Cooking in butter.
    http://i27.tinypic.com/10s5gzl.jpg

    Browned butter is one of my favorite indulgences. Once the fish was
    finished I added a little, o.k. a lot, more butter to the pan and
    browned it. Once the butter was browned I added a healthy splash of
    Pinot Grigio, a squeeze of lemon and let that reduce by about half.

    Trout filet plated with butter sauce, cucumber and capers. I added
    more capers later. mmmmm

    Absolutely delicious

    You lucky bugger!!

    Jealous, much :-)


    Another great way to have them to get every last morsel of taste out of
    the fillets, is coat them in a *good* beer batter and deef fry in clean,
    hot oil.


    To tell you the truth, the fillets look exactly like our 'Flake'.

    You were so right. The best fish I have ever had was trout caught fresh in
    my
    grandfather's "yard" and panfried hours later. Wonderful stuff!

    No, I am serious! His back yard met the Corrotoman River. We pulled perch
    and trout out of there every time we went out. He had a wharf. He also had
    the
    three crab pots Virginia allowed private individuals to have tax free. He
    called
    them "pots" but they were those cage traps with the center part for bait?

    He's take us out in the boat and we'd fish, when we caught a toadfish he'd
    bash it on the floor of the boat to kill it before he cut it up for bait for
    the
    crab pots, and when he saw our horror he's say, in his great baritone
    VA drawl, "po little thing." He was hilarious. And the trout was the best
    ever. I might have been 11 year old.

    Yeah, I know. I figured it was adjacent to water.

    I've caught grass pike, myself.

    Cybercat, Where is the Carrotoman River?? I've lived in VA all my life and
    thought I knew it pretty well, but that is a new one to me.

    Not so much lucky as making a good choice. Deep fried fish can be
    good but pan frying better complements the fresh trout.

    Browned butter sauces are indeed great with fish. For a change you
    might try a bit of bacon grease for pan frying the trout. The flavors
    pair really well.

    > [snip] Yippiee!!! I have a lot more in the freezer.


    The slower you thaw it the better the texture will hold up. Try
    putting it on a plate and the plate on a dish of ice in the fridge.

    You Virginians can be even more provincial than the Marylanders I grew up
    with.

    Have you heard of the RAPPAHANNOCK??
    The Corrotoman is a tributary of it, and of course the Rappahannock meets
    the Chesapeake Bay. The water is brackish to lesser degrees the farther
    inland you go. There is actually a town called Ottoman in VA after the
    Corrotoman. My people lived in the Norther Neck of Virginia for hundreds of
    years. They were watermen, or oystermen, rather than farmers. A bunch of
    scoundrels, of course. The women were all stunningly beautiful and mean as
    snakes, and lived to be 110 years old.
