Allison's Trout

Rated as 4.45 out of 5 Stars

"This year I learned to not only catch my own fish, but to clean, cook and eat them as well. Thrilling. This recipe is my recreation of a dish that was made by a man named Botsy, years ago, in the Rocky Mountains. It's delicious and enhances fresh trout without overpowering it. These could also be prepared in foil packets on a camping trip over an open fire. Although we camp, I don't often include a bottle of sherry in my kitchen box. When you add the sherry, pour a glass for yourself."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a shallow baking dish with foil.
  2. Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat; pour in lemon juice. Cook and stir mushrooms until tender, about 5 minutes; stir in sherry. Place trout fillets with skin sides down into prepared baking dish; sprinkle with salt and cracked pepper. Pour the mushroom mixture over the fish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until sauce reduces and fish flakes easily with a fork, about 30 minutes.

Great as is! Cooked it a day after we caught it, and it was wonderful.

I was disappointed in the flavor of this preparation. I won't make it again, because there are much better trout recipes.

I thought this was a wonderful dish - I used canned mushrooms since I didn't have fresh, but fresh would have been much better. Very tasty!
