Fresh from the lake into the frying pan -This is a moist and delicious trout recipe.

The fishing was good here on Keweenaw Bay this week, producing a nice Lake Trout catch, so I decided to post this Pan Fried Lake Trout recipe. This fish coating browns nicely, has a nice crunch, and complements the fish flavor very well.

This recipe works well for either Lake Trout or Salmon.

If you want a little bit of a change from your regular fish coating recipe give this one a try. Enjoy
