Cooking tip: A fish kettle has an inner perforated tray on which to place fish so that, when cooked, the tray can be lifted out without breaking fish. If such a utensil is not available, place fish on a large piece of muslin, tie ends, and lower into a large saucepan. The fish can then be easily removed when cooked.

Trout en Pappiotte
Take trout of 2 or 3 pounds - gut it and fill the cavity with bay leaves, salt, pepper and wedges of lemon or lime. Encase the fish in kitchen foil with a little dry white wine. cook in oven at about 170C for half an hour. Serve with sauté potato and a dressed salad.
If you have Trouble fitting fish into a roasting tray (or your oven) either buy a bigger oven or bend the fish around into a ring before closing the foil parcel.
Pan- fried Trout
§ ½ cup cornmeal or corn flour
§ 2 tsp dried parsley
§ 1 tsp dried minced onions
§ 1 tsp dried basil
§ 1 tsp garlic powder
§ ½ tsp salt
§ 1 tbsp. butter or oil
§ ¼ tsp dried lemon peel
§ ¼ tsp pepper
§ A pinch of cayenne pepper
§ And to add later - Two 9 oz. trout
Make a fine dry mix of the above ingredients and keep it in a plastic bag or airtight container. Carry the bag with you to the site. When the trout is in your hand, filet and clean it thoroughly. Shake the cleaned fish in the container or plastic bag containing the dry mix. Pour the butter/ oil in a thick-bottomed frying pan kept about one inch above the coal. Cook the fish for about 6 minutes, then flip it, and continue cooking till it becomes flaky. Enjoy!
§ 1 Tbsp whole-wheat flour
§ 1 tsp. onion powder
§ 1 tsp. freshly-grated lemon zest
§ 2 tbsp. chopped flat leaf parsley, for garnish
§ 1 lemon, cut into 8 thin slices
§ Canola/oil cooking spray
§ 4 trout fillets, 5-6 oz. each
At first, heat the oven for about 375 degrees and make a baking layer on it with the cooking spray and keep it aside. Meanwhile mix the other ingredients- the flour, onion powder, and lemon- in an airtight plastic bag or container by shaking it. Add the trout fillets one by one to the container/bag and shake it so that the trout is coated with the mix lightly. Place the trout one by one on the arranged baking sheet. Spread the canola or olive oil over the fish to make a coat of it. Bake it for about 20 minutes until the trout turns opaque and thick. Transfer the baked fish to the plate and sprinkle some parsley over it. Serve with lemon slices.
This will definitely be your favorite because it contains Ancho Chili and Almond Pesto.
§ Two or three Ancho or Anaheim chilies
§ ¼ cup blanched toasted almonds
§ 1 tbs. olive oil
§ 1 clove garlic
§ 1/4 cup orange juice
§ 4 six ounce trout fillets, butterfly-shaped
(Instead of Ancho Chili you may use 4 ounces jarred, roasted red peppers)
Smash the chilies, almonds, and garlic with olive oil in a blender and keep it aside. Smear the trout properly with the orange juice and keep it on an oiled grate with the flesh side down. Grill it for 2 minutes. Then turn the other side and again grill it for 2 more minutes approximately till it turns stiff. Serve it hot with the chili-almond pesto.
