Instructions

Rainbow Trout Instructions:

• Melt lard & butter in skillet over med/high heat then add a handful of fresh thyme.
• Once butter begins to turn golden, add scaled trout fillets skin side down & sprinkle with sea salt.
• In the fish skillet, once fillets begin to brown and crisp on the bottom, add minced chives and allow the fish to braise until fish is no longer translucent.

Brown Butter Instructions:

• In a separate skillet, heat up ½ cup butter and heat until it begins to bubble.
• Immediately add birch syrup, ale & maple sugar while stirring then remove from heat.
