Pan Fried Blackened Trout- Healthy Trout Recipe

Pan fried Trout

Pan fried and blackened Trout, a healthy and easy recipe…

One of my favorite ways of making fish is by pan frying the seasoned fillets in very little oil. Pan fried fish fillets go well with almost any kind of side dishes. Pilaf, mashed potatoes, roasted veggies, risotto, pasta or just steamed jasmine rice.

This does make a healthy meal and great for those who are on a diet. So, next time when you get trout or salmon fillets do try this and enjoy with your favorite side dish. Healthy yet delicious…
