6 - TROUT ORLEANS

Served with a rich lemony sauce, this is quite a special meal.

Ingredients
2 eggs
5 tbsp clarified butter
plain flour, to coat
2 trout fillets, skin on
55g/2oz fresh breadcrumbs
2 lemons, 1 juiced, 1 thinly sliced
55g/2oz butter
2 egg yolks
2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
salt and white pepper

Method
Preheat the grill to warm. In a shallow dish, whisk the eggs with 2 tbsp of the clarified butter.
Put a good handful of flour on a plate and season lightly with white pepper and salt.
Take the trout fillets and coat them with the seasoned flour, then dip them in the egg mixture and finally toss them in breadcrumbs until they are completely covered.
Heat a frying pan until very hot then add 2 tbsp of the clarified butter. Place the breaded fillets in the pan, skin side up for 2 minutes. Turn the fillets over and cook for a further 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Leave the pan on the heat, transfer fillets to a heat-resistant plate, skin side down and place under the grill for 5 minutes.
In a heatproof bowl sitting over a pan of hot water, whisk the lemon juice, butter and egg yolks to a creamy sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Take the fillets from under the grill and place tomato and lemon slices over the flesh side, alternately and overlapping so they cover most of the fish. Turn the grill up to full and cook the fillets for a further minute.
Serve the trout on a plate, covered with sauce.

7 - QUICK TROUT PATTIE

Served with a rich lemony sauce, this is quite a special meal.

Ingredients
1 3lb gutted and deheaded Trout
3 tbsps of Helmans Mayonnaise
1/2 an onion
1 stalk of Celery
1 tsp of lemon juice
1 cup white wine
salt and white pepper
1 tsp honey

Method
Place the trout in a microwave proof dish, cover and cook on full power for 3 - 5 minutes dependent on the power of your microwave - until the trout is cooked through and place to one side to cool.

Chop the onion and celery into small segments and place in a cooking pan with the wine and lemon juice.  Bring to the boil then simmer until the liquid evaporates.  Place to one side to cool. Put through a strainer to remove any excess liquid.

Remove the flesh from the trout and place in a large bowl - taking care to leave the bones and skin out.  Mash up the trout with a fork until it's broken up into small pieces then add in the onion and celery mixture along with the mayonnaise and mix together with a food blender. You should add the salt and pepper at this stage along with the honey and you can also include some other seasoning - Garlic, Chilli, Corriander paste etc... to give the pate your own stamp.

Put in a plastic tub and place in the fridge for a couple of hours to set before serving as a starter with salad or on oatcakes or cheese biscuits.

8 - TROUT FRIED IN PARMESAN AND BREADCRUMBS

This is my own personal favourite.

Ingredients
Skinned, filleted and deboned trout.
1 egg
Plain flour
Salt & Pepper
Grated Parmesan
Breadcrumbs

Method
Mix up the egg with a fork and place in a shallow bowl, mix together half a tea cup of grated parmesan and one cup of breadcrumbs (this should be enough for 4 or 5 fillets - adjust quantities as required), add salt and pepper to the mixture and place in a shallow plate,  place about 1 cup of flour in another shallow plate.  Coat each fillet in egg, followed by flour, followed by the seasoned  parmesan and breadcrumbs.   Prepare a frying pan with olive oil and cook the fillets for 2-4 minutes on each side depending on size when the oil is hot.  Serve with lemon juice and a sprinkling of vinegar with chips and salad....
