Trout Amandine is a classic recipe and it just so happens that I live near one of the most popular fly fishing spots in the nation. You can pull Rainbow, Browns and Cut Throat Trout from several different rivers that are only minutes away from my house. And, believe me, this recipe will dress to impress any fan of any of those fish. I’d even dare say that the preparation of this fish can be easily done with Salmon too; at least the way I do it.
Prepare Trout Amandine
For Trout Amandine, I’ll cut and slice a whole cleaned fish, then marinate it in buttermilk, season with salt and pepper, then stuff it with lemon slices and a seafood medley. At this point you can choose to grill, bake or pan fry the fish. In this video recipe, I take it to the grill but you can do what you prefer. After I cook for 5 minutes, I’ll carefully flip the fish over and prepare the topping which consists of fresh ground Almonds, butter, Amaretto and squeeze from a fresh lemon. I brown the almonds in a pan with some melted butter just before I add the Amaretto and lemon juice and cook over medium low heat till it lightly caramelizes. By then it’s time to pull the Trout off the grill and smother with the caramelized sauce.
This is just a wonderful way to serve Mushrooms and Onions. Whether you’re preparing a side dish or something to compliment your fish or steak, this recipe is just the way to go. The flavor derives from simplicity and sticking to the basics. There’s fresh chopped Garlic, Parsley, Beef Broth, Butter and a touch of Salt and Pepper. It just doesn’t get any easier. And, instead of eating them plain or adding them to your favorite meat or protein, I’m going to show you a fun alternative to completing this dish.
Mushrooms and Onions over Texas Toast
In this Mushrooms and Onions recipe, I combine the ideas behind a Mushroom and Swiss Sandwich with French Onion Soup and Stuffed Mushrooms. Then I wrap them up into one glorious recipe that just can’t be denied. The Broth soaks into the toasted garlic bread and the addition of Swiss cheese just melts through and around every ingredient. So, each bite you take is simply amazing!
