Recipe Information

# of Servings: 3
Recipe Created By: Amy Hugon


5-6 fresh trout
2 Tbsp margarine
2 Tbsp olive oil
3/4 cup crispy rice cereal
3/4 cup Nutty Rice cereal or other crunchy cereal
to taste seasoning salt and pepper
1/2 cup milk, or dairy-free alternative
1 egg


Rinse gutted fish. If they were brought home ungutted, throw them out and eat something else.

With a very sharp knife, cut fish in half down the backbone. Under running water, peel off skin (some meat will peel off too).

If desired, bone. On cutting board, grasp backbone and peel - smaller bones will follow. You will lose meat doing this, but if you want to avoid small bones for small children, it's easier to bone before cooking.

In flat dish, mix egg and milk or milk alternative.

Process cereals through food processor, and season.

Put oil and margarine in frying pan, and heat to medium heat.

Plop fish in egg mixture. Dredge in cereal mixture, and place in pan, which now is hot.

Cook about 2-3 minutes per side. These are done quickly, and need to be served hot.


Garlic flavored oil is nice in this.


I believe you could use Egg Replacer, or omit the egg. I didn't try as I was making this for my NKA children.
