Lovely! I'm becoming a big fan of trout. SEANZILLA: 'Amandine' is right it means "garnished with almonds." Almondine isn't a word in the dictionary. Read More

After reading the reviews I was wondering how such a simple recipe could rate so many 5 star reviews. I guess sometimes simplicity is best because this is truly wonderful. I cooked 2 large fillets (and used less than half the butter) and very lightly floured them. DH isn't a big fish eater unless he orders it in a restaurant where it comes covered with a rich sauce but he told me 3 times during dinner how much he liked this. Thanks for the wonderful Trout Amandine recipe. Read More

Hubby brought home fresh trout and this is an excellent and simple recipe. I use clarified butter whenever possible and it works great in this recipe. I also used sliced almonds and they were wonderful in this dish. Note to seanzilla: a man dine: Prepared or garnished with almonds: swordfish amandine. Read More

Just made this recipe tonight - didn't think much of it while making it but surprisingly good tasting - my husband loved it - this recipe is a keeper. I still wonder what 'sauce' you mean to add to trout? Some changes I made: I added all the lemon juice (and more) to almonds and butter before topping the trout. Also had to bake in oven for an extra 15 min - didn't seem to cook well stovetop. Couldn't reasonably eat this every week too much butter - wow! Read More
