Makes 4 to 5 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs trout fillets, about 1/2" thick
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter - divided
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

Method

  1. Season fish generously with salt and pepper. Dip into flour lightly and shake off any excess flour.
  2. Heat a large skillet with olive oil and half the butter. When hot, add fish. Do not overcrowd the pan - do this in two batches. Cook fish 2 to 3 minutes per side until browned, crispy and just cooked through.
  3. Discard any oil left in the pan and return pan to heat. Add the remaining butter and lemon juice. When butter melts spoon it over the fish.
