can I ask how you guys cook these? I attempted to clean a few my son caught today, and it was aggravating to say the least. I appreciate any hints you can give me! Thanks! Thomas
Thanks Bob,Robert,and thomas_z71 for the replies.
Robert: Helping other anglers/people out is what it is all about. I totally agree with you!
thomas_z71: Trout are the easiest fish to clean.
Gut them,and cut the heads off. Make sure you rinse the cavity out super good and make sure that the upper vane line is removed.
You can usually run your thumb over the vane to force it out.
As for cooking em I love em fried. Roll them in regular yellow mustard,then roll them in your favorite fish fry. I use Louisianan Fish Fry-Crispy. You can use Wesson vegetable cooking oil,Peanut Oil,or Crisco to fry them in.Fry them until golden brown. I love mine very well done and usually fry em a little longer. They turn out super GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD.
Side Note: There are several you tube videos on cleaning Rainbow Trout that you can watch and learn from.
Here are some Rainbows that I fried up recently!
