Smoked Trout Mmmmmmm!!!
Try something different for all those Trout you catch? How about Smoking?1 Hot-smoked trout of about 1lb 7oz
Trout, because of size, are perfect fish to smoke. Smoking is used to preserve fish, and cooks the trout while it adds that great smoke flavour. There are thousands of different ways to use smoked trout to make a great meal or starter.

Brown Trout Fillets in Nut Butter Dressing
4 Brown Trout Fillets, scales removed
Plain flour for coating
50g Lightly Salted Butter
50g chopped, roasted hazelnuts
Fresh Flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
Rinse the trout fillets and pat dry. Lightly coat the fish in the flour and set aside. Heat the butter in a non-stick frying pan, large enough to accommodate all the fillets, until sizzling. Gently lay the fillets, skin side down in the butter and leave for 2 minutes. Gently shake the pan; if the fish are stuck, leave them a little longer. When they are browned, turn them using two fish slices and continue to cook until firm and cooked through. Remove the fish to warmed serving plates while you finish the dressing. Add the hazelnuts to the frying pan and stir to heat through and flavour the butter. Pour a little of this mix over each fillet and finish the dish with a drizzle of hazelnut oil and the chopped parsley.

2 garlic cloves, sliced finely
1 onion, chopped finely
a handful of fresh parsley, chopped
25g plain flour
