Cornmeal-crusted Trout w/ Lemon-Anchovy-Caper Sauce



[js]
There's nothing to this recipe.
The only thing hard about this dish is the actual doing of it.

Get cornmeal.
Season cornmeal with salt, pepper, and whatever spices you like. I chose a little bit of our recently replenished smoked hot paprika, but you can use cumin or your favourite spice.

Cut trout fillets into strips.
Dredge trout strips in seasoned cornmeal.
Pan-fry in hot oil.



Serve with tartar sauce.

Or, in this case, this was actually a faux Caesar dressing TS made for a salad. Mayo, capers, garlic, cornichons, lemon juice, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and anchovies. I think that was everything.

  2. I did this once with spiked bread crumbs instead; (Where am I going to get cornmeal here?) and baked instead of fried. But I didn't have your yummy dip...

    This looks interesting. I love trout - my dad used to take me fishing when I was little, and this reminds me a bit of the things my grandmother used to do with our "harvest."

  5. This looks great and being in the South cornmeal is easy to find. I just need to find a good source for trout.

  8. This reminds me of these great fish frys on Fridays that we used to go to when I was little. I love crunchy, fried fish!

  10. Yup - this is a very simple recipe - but it's oh sooo good. That's what we do in the afro-american community. We love frying fish with a cornmeal dredging. That's really the only way we do it. We don't really use a tartar sauce (although I love me some tartar sauce). Instead we typically get some good Louisiana hot sauce - lol. Great job w/this.

  12. I really like the texture that cornmeal gives to many things, especially fish like you've done here.

  13. This is fantastic! I tried crumbing with cornmeal (polenta) last week, except for cauliflower. It would be lovely with trout too. Nice combo.

  14. The fish looks great and I love the sauce. I just made trout for the first time a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. I'll have to try it your way next time.

  16. Woo, nice! What kind of trout was it - the flesh looks pinkish?

    Would this recipe work as well baked?
