Hazelnut Crusted Trout
One of the best parts of spring, at least for me, is open-water fishing. The only place we’re finding open water this year in early April is streams and the outlets of lakes and ponds. They’re great places to find brookies and salmon. We like to make the best of cold water fishing now since the salmon will head down to deeper water when the temperature rises. I like trout best but I don’t say no to a nice fresh salmon!
This recipe for Hazelnut Crusted Trout also works well with salmon. I haven’t tried it with other fish but I can’t think of a reason why it wouldn’t be good unless the fish were oily. I don’t know that it wouldn’t be good with an oily fish like mackerel (I don’t like mackerel at all). If you try it, please let me know what you think.
I stock up on nuts in November. They’re in the produce section. Now that it’s spring you’ll most likely find them in the baking aisle. If you want to substitute you can use walnuts.
