Trout are, in the minds of many people, one of the finest foods that swim. Fried fish for dinner is hard to beat, and this fried trout recipe will be a special treat after a long day of fishing. Serves 4
2 lbs. filleted or pan-dressed trout
1 can warm beer
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp pepper (or to taste)
salt to taste
oil for frying
Mix the ingredients other than the fish and let stand 30 minutes at room temperature or until the beer flattens. Whisk the mixture until it's frothy and dip the fish in the batter. Heat the oil in the pan until it's hot and fry the fish about 1 minute on each side, or until the flesh flakes easily.
