Whole Trout with Herbs & Green

Here is the catch of the day! This minimalist recipe is great to make at home, when you are out for a picnic, or even while sitting on a frozen lake.

Ingredients

Whole Trout with Herbs & Greens Ingredients:

• 1 whole trout, 10-12 oz., cleaned and gutted

• Salt, pepper

• 1 cups peanut or canola oil for deep-frying

• 1 lemon, sliced

• 1-2 garlic cloves, sliced

• 1 small onion, very thinly sliced

• Fresh dill and parsley or any other greens that can be foraged or pulled from your garden

Instructions

Whole Trout with Herbs & Greens Instructions:

• Preheat the oil in a wok or fire-safe outdoor cooking vessel.

• Make diagonal slashes on both sides of the fish.

• Season the fish with salt and pepper on both sides and in the inside cavity.

• Stuff the cavity of the fish with the slices of lemon, garlic, onion, and some of the herbs, then tie the fish with butcher’s string to keep the stuffing in.

• Deep-fry the fish in the preheated oil for 10-15 minutes, making sure to flip the fish if it is not immersed in the oil. Fry until golden brown and crispy-looking.

Assembly:

• Serve the fish whole, with a bit of olive oil drizzled over along with some freshly squeezed lemon juice. Serve over a bed of the remaining herbs and greens.
