This recipe comes from the book, Lowbush Moose and Other Alaskan Recipes, by the late Gordon R. Nelson, and was brought to my attention by a friend of mine in Alaska who was a friend to two of Nelson's sons. Gordon Nelson was a Territorial and State Trooper in Alaska for many years, and also was "one heck of a guy."

Quote Trout Antoinette

So you are tired of cooking trout like frying, broiling and roasting. Yes, they are all good, but there is another way, as this recipe from my mother's collection will show you.

For 4 servings:

4 medioum sized trout, cleaned, but with heads left on
1/4 teaspoon salt
Boiling water to cover fish
6 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

Place the trout in a large frying pan, salt, and pour in the boiling water. Keep the water simmering for 6 minutes. Remove fish and set aside to drain.

In a saucepan melt the butter and add the paprika and allspice.

Skin the fish and lay it on a warm platter. Pour the butter sauce over the fish and serve.

My friend, Mike, reports, "Add a bit of brown sugar to the butter sauce and it'll taste like sweet Dungeness crab."

t didn't say, Brooke - I assumed that his mother was named Antoinette, but I could be wrong.

Hope all of you have had a lovely summer.

Surely the r├ęcipe could be named after a favorite Lady or The River where the trout were caught perhaps !!

Simple, truly easy and superb means of preparing wild trout ..


Have a wonderful summer,

M.A.C.
