When you have the freshest fish on the planet to work with, the rule of thumb is – keep it simple.
• 3 to 4 pound Lake Trout, filleted and cut into bite size pieces
• ½ cup, all purpose flour
• ½ cup, corn flake crumbs
• 1 tbs. seasoned salt
• 1 tsp. dill
• 2 eggs, beaten
• ½ to 1 cup of milk
• Onion salt
• Oil for deep frying
Combine flour, corn flake crumbs, season salt and dill. Mix well and place in a medium size bowl.
Beat eggs, and add enough milk to make a light wash.
Dip trout pieces in egg wash and roll in coating.
Fry until crisp, drain on paper towels and sprinkle with pepper and onion salt.
